Tomorrow Options exhibits WalkinSense mobility monitor for diabetics at Medica
16 November 2009
Sheffield company Tomorrow Options is exhibiting its
WalkinSense portable patient mobility monitor at Medica 2009 this week.
Both easy to use and non-invasive, the wireless device gathers and
processes data of lower limb movements during walking, measuring both
patient mobility patterns and plantar pressure.
WalkinSense is used by health technicians that deal with diabetic foot
disorders — a problem that causes foot ulcers and lower limbs
amputations; with reports estimating diabetic foot being responsible for
one limb amputation every 30 seconds.
Being lightweight and portable, the device allows patients to
continue their everyday lives whilst being monitored. The quantitative
and qualitative information gathered and processed by this device can be
transferred (via Bluetooth or USB cable) to a computer to be analyzed
with the user-friendly software supplied with the device.
The software was developed to be used by any health technician in a
simple and easy way, without need of any computer expertise, saving
valuable time for healthcare professionals.
Paulo Ferreira dos Santos, CEO, of Tomorrow Options said, “MEDICA
offers us the perfect stage to platform our innovative and forward
thinking products. With offices in both Portugal and the UK, we are
proof that cross-continental business works and we are eager to find
more opportunities of partnerships to commercialise our innovative
products and to future developments."
Tomorrow Options will be located in hall 16 stand G10 at Medica,
18-21 November 2009 at the Messe Düsseldorf.
