QUANTIC NANOTECH, a product division of Spanish DEMAC S.A. group will present the first real wearable device for the treatment and prevention of osteoarthritis in Eureka Park at CES 2019.
The convenient and easy-to-use device is made for home use. Controlled by any smartphone or as standalone IoT device, the wearable enables remote monitoring by medical personnel.
“Three years ago, I was diagnosed with hand osteoarthritis. When I went to the hospital, I found the treatment so cumbersome and complicated that I decided to create a more simple and efficient solution for everyone,” said Jose Luis Torre DEMAC group CEO and author of many international related published patents.
The product won awards at various international shows like InPEX Pittsburgh, ITEX Indonesia and ‘Salon International des Inventions’ Geneva and integrates cutting-edge technologies like memory shaped alloys and latest generation materials, said a press release.
“The customized adaptation along with the possibility of applying topical treatments provided for this device can be very useful in hand osteoarthritis, said Dr. Juan Mulero MD Rheumatologist of the Ruber Internacional Hospital of Madrid. “This device is a way to apply at the same time and during the night several modalities of treatment in the osteoarthritic hand. This disease is very common, because according to the Framingham Osteoarthritis Study it produces in US symptoms of pain and deformity in 16% of women and in 8% of males. The local management of hand osteoarthritis combines both non-pharmacological and pharmacological approaches. Topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are recommended as a first-line pharmacological treatment, and splints might offer warmth, support and stabilization of joints,” he added.
