Device for Detecting Tremors for Neurological Disorders – IP 1403

Tremors, one of the most common movement disorders, areassociated with several factors such as aging, and certain neurologicaldisorders like Parkinson’s disease (PD). This technology uses an inexpensivehardware-software assimilated design to analyze the effectiveness of repetitiveTranscranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) on patients with PD and other relateddisorders before, during, and after the stimulation-based treatment. The systemconsists of a hardware design solution that detects, acquires, and stores datacollected in 3 dimensions, and a software module that acquires tremor signals,processes the information and synchronizes the trigger of the TMS via thehardware component. It also provides a graphical user interface that guides thedevelopment of patient-specific mechanisms required for biofeedback treatment. The strategy behind this integrated 3DTremor-Stimulation-Biofeedback (TSB) Detector design is to provide customizedmagnetic stimulation of the brain according to the given tremor frequency ofeach patient. This technology allows for new understanding on how repetitivestimulation is best applied to patients. Shantanu Balkundi 305-348-8061
