After the success of Anda Basic, an application that through stimulating sounds improves the gait process in patients with Parkinson’s, today it seeks to evolve by venturing into Augmented Reality.
To understand the success of Anda and the reasons that have led to consider Augmented Reality as a possible solution to the gait problems presented by people with Parkinson’s, it is important in the first instance to understand what this disease consists of.
What is Parkinson’s?
Parkinson’s is a type of movement disorder that occurs when neurons don’t produce enough dopamine. This disease occurs progressively in the nervous system affecting movement.
This disease causes tremor in the hands, arms, legs and face, in the same way it generates rigidity in the arms, legs and trunk, slowing down movements and causing problems of balance and coordination.
MODULES OF THE ANDA APPLICATION
Reproduce sounds that stimulate the brain, allowing a more fluid gait.
Keep track of your weight, heart rate and body mass.
The record is stored allowing to evaluate the progress of the patients.
In case of taking medication, you can receive reminders in the app.
What is the success of Anda Basic?
The functionality of the application is very simple and practical. Users find various musical genres, as well as the frequency of sounds, this directly affects the speed of the march that the user wants to acquire. Once the sounds begin to be played, the improvement is instantaneous.
Human Bionics is looking to develop Augmented Reality glasses, which combined with the application of Anda Basic, generate gait indications to the user and at the same time stimulate the production of dopamine in the brain, through sounds.
THE FUTURE IS NOW
How will Anda’s Augmented Reality glasses work?
The device will include a camera and a sensor, capable of analyzing the environment using artificial intelligence, to indicate the area of march. The indications will be reflected in the lenses by means of mini projectors. On the other hand, the glasses will have osseous earphones and an integrated volume control connected to the application via Bluetooth.
