Helpful Tech of the Day: Advanced Spoon Adjusts to Tremors Caused by Parkinson's Disease

Favorite
- -

Lift Labs has created a specially designed spoon that uses camera stabilizing technology to adapt to tremors cause by Parkinson's Disease which allows those how suffer from the condition to eat more easily.

The Liftware system is designed for people whose hand tremor interferes with activities of daily living (ADLs). Typically, these hand tremors are caused by a medical condition such as Essential Tremor or Parkinson's Disease. Sensors in the Liftware handle detect a person's tremor, and the device responds using motors to move the spoon opposite the tremor. The spoon can discern motion from hand tremor from other types of motion, allowing it to respond to just the tremor while preserving the user's intended motion. In contrast to braces, which force a user's hand to be still and can cause patient discomfort, Liftware allows the patient's hand to shake while stabilizing food in the spoon.

Health Tech of the Day: Microsoft 'Smart Bra' Helps Women Stay Healthy

Favorite
- -

Microsoft is developing a bra designed to help women with both their emotional and physical health. The sensors inside it detect heart rate, sweat, and stress levels which indicate the potential for over-eating. The bra can also connect to your smart phone to send you a "mood-triggered eating alert" as well as give you suggestions on how to redirect your brain to do something else.


The idea of a 'smart undergarment' has been marketed to women because of research that says they are most likely to emotionally over-eat. The current prototypes are not perfect; the battery life only lasts 3 to 4 hours.
