A checkup with Dr. Smartphone: Israe's best and brightest of Israel's innovative startups present at MIXiii
May. 20, 2014
Medical startup Mon4t is set to release a new application on Tuesday that allows users to monitor and review the conditions of patients with neurological disorders. The application interfaces with various sensors built into smartphones. The data is collected and sent from the smartphone to an open cloud, where they are processed and sent through two channels. One is directly to the medical practitioner, allowing the doctor to provide the best possible care without the patient having to visit the hospital. The other channel is a collective hospital databank, which provides information to drug and medical device manufacturers to help them develop better products.
The new application will be unveiled at the 2014 Israel Innovation Conference, Mixiii 2014, which will open its doors on Tuesday at the Israel Trade Fairs & Convention Center in Tel Aviv. The system will also provide a real-time, automatic warning in two directions: to the doctor, if one of his patients' status begins to deteriorate, and a system-wide warning, such as at the Health Ministry, if it is suspected that a certain medication is defective.
Another product set to be unveiled at the expo on Tuesday deals with developing artificial intelligence, called Handy. It is a personal assistant for mobile devices by Israeli startup Digital Instinct. The application is the company's first: a smart system that studies its user, while creating synergy between different mobile functions.
