Portabiles HealthCare Technologies

Portabiles is a global technology leader in Parkinson’s Disease Monitoring & Therapy Adjustment

Parkinson’s affects more than 7 million patients and will double in the next generation. It causes immobility, poor quality-of-life and finally death. After 5 years all therapies show fading efficacy and require lifelong complex medication adjustments done only by specialized neurologists. They perform a short visual gait analysis, followed by a medical gait scoring and a trial & error-based medication adjustment. The visual gait analysis by the physician is highly subjective only a snapshot. Unfortunately patients gait changes dramatically within 15 minutes every day. Therefore each adjustment cycle takes months and ends up with increasing gait limitations for patients and high burden for caregivers. In cooperation with Neurologists, patients & AI leaders Portabiles developed world`s first and only solution that automates the complete medication adjustment cycle based on objective 24/7 patient gait data. For neurologists adjustment now becomes data based and as a result simpler, better, faster & cheaper. For patients it allows convenient home monitoring, improved mobility, less falls & fear. Our solution is based on unique machine-learning algorithms andmicro-electronic sensors attached to the patients’ shoes. They capture and analyse patients movementsand gait parameters. In a second step the AI performs the medical gait scoring and finally assists/performs the complex medication adjustment. Our proprietary medical algorithms are the results of 10 years clinical research. Clinical proof-of-concept has been shown on more than 3.000 stratified gait analyses.  Pilot customers used the system and published more than 20 peer reviewed publications. A PCT application is pending (US, EU). Our first two products are medical devices and CE marked.
