EKLIPS – a cloud platform for AI-driven optimization of deep brain stimulation

Stardots is thrilled to announce another MedTech project and this time we are teaming up with two of the best scientists in their respective fields to deliver the next generation Deep-Brain Stimulation (DBS) techniques, useful in the treatment of e.g., Parkinson’s disease.

Together with research groups of neurologist PhD Dag Nyholm from Uppsala university hospital and professor of control engineering and director of automatic control Alexander Medvedev from Uppsala university, we are building a cloud-based, AI-driven, platform for improving the DBS treatment.

Dag Nyholm and Alexander Medvedev, from Uppsala University hospital and Uppsala University is discussing the ELKIPS Project – and AI- and Cloud driven platform for the MedTech industry, designed to deliver the next generation treatment for e.g., Parkinson.

DBS is considered one of the best and reliable techniques for e.g., Parkinson treatment. Combining Stardots cloud, application and computation technology, with Uppsala university newly developed AI algorithms, and the experience and knowledge in neuro-science and neuro-surgery, the project will develop a system that will aid doctors in their optimization of DBS for patients. The system will further enhance the effects of the DBS-treatment using smart and self-learning algorithms, adjusting the DBS-parameters using various inputs and models in one easy and intuitive interface.

The project working title is “EKLIPS” and is partly funded by Vinnova – Sweden’s innovation agency. EKLIPS will be built in conjunction with our previous announces project: sPark. More information will follow on www.stardots.se/news or contact us on info@stardots.se.
