ADHD wearable

This Biofeedback Therapeutic Wearable May Ease Symptoms of ADHD

Drum Echoes, Inc., a Florida startup has developed a biofeedback therapeutic wearable that may ease the symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). Matt Giordano, the president of the company, was diagnosed with ADHD and Tourette syndrome when he was five. He and his team decided to do something about the struggles many people with […]
Wearables for seizures

Wearable Technology Can Predict or Even Prevent Epileptic Seizures

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures, sensations, and sometimes loss of awareness. Seizure symptoms can vary widely. Some people with epilepsy simply stare blankly for a few seconds during a seizure, while others repeatedly twitch their arms or legs. However, there isn’t much you can do to stop […]
Dopamine detect sensors

University of Central Florida Researchers Developing Sensors to Detect Parkinson’s Disease in Seconds

Dopamine is a chemical that is believed to play a role in various diseases such as Parkinson’s, depression and some cancers. When Parkinson’ disease develops, the cells in the substantia nigra part of the brain begin to die. These cells produce dopamine and the loss of dopamine in the brain leads to issues with movement. […]
Medtronic DBS for epilepsy

Medtronic to Launch Deep Brain Simulation for Medically-Refractory Epilepsy in the U.S.

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behavior, sensations, and sometimes loss of awareness. About a third of patients do not respond positively to medicines and some experience mild to severe side-effects. Medtronic is introducing deep brain stimulation therapy (DBS) as an option for treating […]
Untethered Electrode for Neural Stimulation

Pitt Researchers Develop Tiny Light-Activated Electrode for Neural Stimulation

Neural Stimulation involves electrical stimulation of nerve tissues and is the basis of emerging treatments for neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. One of the major problems with this technique is the need to have a cable connecting the implanted electrode to an external controller. Researchers at the University of Pittsburg (Pitt) have developed a […]
