Med-Tech Innovation News has caught up with Lucy Jung, CEO of Charco Neurotech. His company won the Med-Tech Innovation Award for Design this year.
First of all, congratulations on your award, what do you think?
I am very happy to receive this award. It’s the best title we can hope for. Med-Tech Innovation Design Award. Design that translates as a problem-solver is what we value. Our goal is to design medical devices that improve the quality of life for people. That makes a lot of sense for our team. Thank you very much.
Where did the idea for Charco Neurotechs CUE1 for Parkinson’s disease come from?
One of our early participants talked about how he discovered that his massage chair temporarily improved the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. We have developed various prototypes and have begun investigating how to identify and duplicate elements of a massage chair.
What did you need to consider when designing and developing your device?
Early prototypes worked with Parkinson’s disease volunteers to adjust and adjust the stimulation and placement of the device to produce optimal results. The ease of use of the device was also a very important part of our journey. With the challenges users face on the move in mind, we designed the device closely with them to make it desirable, easy to use, and effective.
It provides an intensive stimulus. How do you measure if your device is doing what you want it to do?
Charco tested the device using clinically important and objective measurements. We used the MDS Integrated Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS), tapping test, and time-up and go test. All of these showed significant improvements across participants. We also asked participants to try out their daily tasks such as typing, removing cards from their wallets, and walking in the yard, and the results were very promising. However, perhaps the most important thing is whether the device user is feeling the improvement on their own. People with Parkinson’s claim that their movements were easier, faster, and more tuned while using CUE1.
Currently used for Parkinson’s disease, can this device be used or adapted for use in other conditions?
definitely! Studies of intensive vibrating and tactile stimuli show its potential in the treatment of other neurological conditions. It can help people suffering from stroke, spinal cord injury, and multiple sclerosis.
Interestingly, Charco is also investigating the potential benefits of CUE1 for people with stuttering, showing that participants’ stuttering episodes have decreased by an average of 80% so far.
Based on that, are there any future developments?
The purpose of Charcos is, first and foremost, to improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson’s disease, and further to improve the quality of life for these long-term conditions. We are currently preparing to set up a production line to launch the CUE1 for Parkinson’s disease in 2021. In addition, we are developing a software platform that complements the CUE1 system. Smart motion tracking games, data recording, and machine learning will enable both Parkinson’s patients and healthcare professionals to better track and manage their symptoms over time.
Is there anything else you would like to add? If desired, you can also include a short victory speech here.
We are very much looking forward to being the winner of the 2020 Med-Tech Innovation Award. This will allow our team to continue their journey to improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson’s disease. Thank you very much!
