In Episode 8 it was our pleasure to welcome Seamus Small, the Co-Founder and CEO of Kinesis Health Technologies an innovative health technology company based in Dublin, Ireland. His company is focused on falls prevention in older adults as well as gait and mobility assessment. QTUG, is their proprietary technology for clinicians and researchers which uses body worn sensors combined with a standard clinical test (the Timed Up and Go - TUG) to better assess risk of falls, gait and mobility.
QTUG can be used for population level screening of mobility and falls risk as well as ongoing objective assessment for use in rehabilitation.
In this episode Seamus discussed their latest product, Kinesis Balance, a consumer friendly smartphone application for remote monitoring and self-assessment of balance and falls risk. This new tech uses machine learning algorithms combined with questionnaires and wearable or smartphone sensors to provide reliable assessment of balance and falls risk in the home and give users more control and insight into their daily mobility and safety. It is currently available for free in the Google Play store.
