Gait and Balance Parameters Inferred with the PROTXX Head Accelerometer (Phase 2)

The vestibular organs detect head movement and are involved in the coordination of standing balance. With balance problems being a common and expensive healthcare cost internationally, there is a growing need for new diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices that target vestibular balance function. In particular, a wearable device that could be used outside the clinic could provide a convenient, low-cost alternative.

Remote health monitoring and rehabilitation of patients with neurological conditions to minimize the risk of COVID-19 spread in Canadian hospitals

Social distancing is recommended globally to slow down the COVID-19 virus spread in order to prevent the healthcare system overload. Particularly, hospital visits increase the risk of infection for non-infected patients and healthcare workers. Therefore, virtual healthcare can help the healthcare system in many ways.
