Wearable Precision Healthcare

PROTXX innovations in wearable sensors and machine learning transform the lives of tens of millions of people living with complex neurophysiological conditions.

Multiple sclerosis
Parkinson’s disease

Many neurological conditions lead to widespread disruptions throughout the brain, causing patients to suffer from impairments to multiple corresponding physiological systems in the body.

Current solutions for diagnosing these multiple impairments and monitoring responses to treatments and medications require multiple time-consuming tests carried out by multiple clinical specialists using expensive equipment, or rely on subjective observations and patient self-reporting, leading to billions of dollars in healthcare cost inefficiencies and sub-optimal patient outcomes.

Patients suffer from impairments to multiple physiological systems

Introducing the PROTXX physiological vibration acceleration (phybrata) sensor

  • The phybrata sensor detects microscopic involuntary motions of the body, both normal and pathological.
  • The PROTXX machine learning engine identifies and analyzes contributions of each physiological system.
  • Impairments to each system are quantified and monitored using unique biomechanical vibrational signatures.
