New Motion Sensor Technology set to save the NHS Millions Thursday 17 April 2008 PDF Print A Dynamic new motion sensor technology has been developed in the UK by a technology think tank based in Hertfordshire. Following on from years of intensely secretive and pioneering research European Technology for Business Ltd. (ETB) have developed a ground breaking portfolio of products for imminent commercial release that will potentially save millions of pounds for the NHS and private healthcare centres. ETB find themselves in the unique position of being able to supply their diagnostic motion systems into the medical diagnostic and health care markets and at the same time enable clinicians to substantially reduce the cost of diagnostics and treatment by having on demand accurate information about how their patient is moving. This can help in the treatment of conditions as diverse as Parkinson's to Hydrocephalus. In the case of after care treatment the system will allow clinicians to assess if the patent is improving. More importantly in the case of replacement hips, or knees, the system can assess if the patient is over doing the rehabilitation and potentially causing further damage. The clinician will have accurate, reliable, repeatable information and not have to rely on the patient's memory. This will aid in the treatment of Diabetes, Hydrocephalus, Parkinsons, Osteoarthritis and also fall and stumble detection in the elderly? The benefits for the user are massive as they are monitored in a stress free environment, no 'white coat syndrome'. The system is already being used with outstanding results in cardiology departments and a world leading joint hospital. ETB are currently signing joint venture agreements with a number of companies and are interested in exploring and developing license and investment agreements that will continue to further exploit their lucrative technology. Current research is showing that gait motion and joint angle monitoring can be applied to many related medical conditions. What is unique about ETB is not only the current products, but the incredible road map of systems they are about to launch, which range from digital representation of humans for movies, to the detection of diseases.
