For the 2016 SINAIMedMaker Challenge, a group of motivated individuals from a variety of backgrounds formed multidisciplinary teams and worked intensely on novel solutions for the management, monitoring, and treatment of Pain and Fatigue. These problems can be addressed by the following technology solution categories: Assessment & Characterization Frameworks, Tracking & Monitoring Devices/Platforms, Decision-Making Management Apps, and Therapeutic Apps & Devices.
There were three prizes for the winners decided by a panel of judges who were watching the presentations from all groups on the last day of the event.
- 1st Place - $3500 - PT Partner
- 2nd Place - $2500 - Sickle Me Not
- 3rd Place - $1500 - bioLumen
Adherence to high quality physical therapy greatly improves functional recovery and reduces chronic pain after knee surgery, such as total knee arthroplasty. PT Partner created a wearable device that surrounds the knee and ankle joint which can track the patient’s physical therapy course via a phone application, provide real-time feedback to the patient while they complete their therapy, and report important metrics to their care provider such as completion of scheduled exercise, range of motion and daily activity.
SickleMeNot is a multi-platform application for managing and engaging pediatric sickle cell patients.
bioLumen is a noninvasive biofeedback therapy that treats lumbar muscle tension, a component of chronic low back pain. The system analyzes electromyography of the back muscles in relatime to control room lighting color, music, and more in a patient's home environment. Session data can also be uploaded to EMRs for clinical review.
