The New Digital Health Vital Sign

The PROTXX wearable sensor enables precision balance tests as an information-rich new vital sign to assess and manage fatigue, impairment, injury and disease.

PROTXX proprietary data sets and machine learning insights drive the shift from expensive and reactive health care to more efficient and higher quality preventive care and performance optimization.

Bringing Precision Balance Testing to Billions of Underserved Users

  • Athletic
  • Elderly
  • Industrial
  • Military

Balance is an indicator of more disorders than any other non-invasive assessment tool, but testing is limited to less than 5% of potential patients and users because:

  • Test equipment is too expensive and requires trained professionals.
  • Test sensitivity is often insufficient to identify many disorders.
  • Test protocols take too much time.

Delayed diagnoses and treatment further reduce patient well being and greatly increase cost of care.

Precision Balance Testing: Platform as a Service Solution

  • Precision Sensor
  • Mobile App
  • Data Analytics

The patented PROTXX multi-function sensor integrates a precision balance monitor and a head impact dosimeter into an unobtrusive device that can be worn behind the ear by users of any age.

The enhanced sensitivity of the PROTXX sensor, combined with proprietary machine learning algorithms, allows health care professionals to identify and more effectively manage a wider range of fatigue, impairment, injury and disease conditions.

PROTXX balance measurements can be performed on one or more users in less than one minute in any location.
