Attending the Digital Health Impact 2019

Together with our friends from Harvard, MassBio and the Life Science community we recently attended the Digital Health Impact 2019 in Boston. The importance, challenges and opportunities within Digital Health were discussed. This emerging sector and platforms such as Stardots’ AI-TRUST, reflect combined advances in the Life Sciences, Digital Technology and Medical Devices industries. All bringing to light the question….How do we apply all this data to really impact outcomes and reduce costs?

We discussed digital health and Software-as-a-Drug in general and Stardots´ platform for Parkinson’s Disease “AI-TRUST” with the attendees including the Governor of Massachusetts Charlie Baker, CBO of MassBio John Hallinan, Harvard lecturer Luba Greenwood and co-founder of Flare Capital Bill Geary. We really learned a lot from the event. The future for digital health platforms such as ours is bright.

A reoccurring issue was the realization and real-world benefits of digital health platforms. We believe that such a platform should be developed in strong collaboration with the life science and health care sector. AI-TRUST is a joint venture between Stardots, Uppsala University and Uppsala University Hospital and we are working closely with neurological clinics and professionals in EU and the U.S.

Neuroimaging in Umeå University

Stardots was invited to Umeå university in Sweden to present our company, vision and the application platform. The group focuses in neuroimaging and uses MATLAB extensively to acquire data, control outputs and for post-analysis. We were totally blown away about the quality of their research, the results they generated and the level of code they produce.

Real-time visualization of individual cells in mice involves a lot of programming to produce data-driven insights
 Many programmers face the problem of commercialization and distribution of their code and solutions, and so did this group. Our application platform is built to solve these shortcomings and provide a portal for scientists and programmers to meet, exchange ideas and offer applications. We at Stardots are so honored to be collaborating with the best in the industry in order to improve the efforts of R&D and society at large.

Stardots attends Jefferies health care conference in NYC

Stardots attended Jefferies global health care conference in NYC to seek funding for our digital health platform for our Parkinson’s disease “AI-TRUST”. World leading health care companies presented cutting edge technologies, biotech innovations and pharmaceuticals in this investment focused conference. Stardots is currently seeking funding for our AI-TRUST platform in order to quantify symptoms and offer AI-optimized treatment to Parkinson’s in order to improve quality of life, reduce cost to society and to aid in clinical trials. It aims to provide progressive markers for Parkinson’s.

AI-TRUST is a cloud based, digital health platform and a joint-venture with Uppsala University and Uppsala University Hospital. The algorithms used for mathematical modelling are based on years of research by Prof. Alexander Medvedev and clinical trials by MD PhD Dag Nyholm.

EKLIPS awarded a prestigious grant

We are very pleased to announce that Vinnova – Sweden’s innovation agency – has awarded Stardots a prestigious “Innovative Startup” grant for »QUEST« – a sub component in Stardots medical platform »EKLIPS«.
»EKLIPS« estimates symptoms and offer AI-powered treatment suggestions for patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD). The effects of PD are severe; the cost is estimated to be ~14 B€ per year in EU alone in addition to the human suffering. Around 1% of all people above 60 years will be affected by PD. »EKLIPS« will lower the cost of PD treatment for society and significantly increase quality of life for the patient.

One key component to »EKLIPS« is to estimate Parkinson’s symptoms quantitively using mathematical modelling. »QUEST« is a novel idea to estimate the associated tremor of a PD patient using the cloud, a mobile phone and advanced algorithms developed under many years by Prof. Alexander Medvedevs research group at Uppsala university. The algorithms have been tested clinically at Uppsala university Hospital (Akademiska sjukhuset) with Assoc. Prof. MD Dag Nyholm research Group and the results are impressive and encouraging. We estimate that »QUEST« will be available for Android and iOS within a year.

»EKLIPS« is a joint venture between Stardots AB, Uppsala university and Uppsala university Hospital, and collaborates with various organizations and companies in Europe and USA. The platform is expected to be ready for launch within a few years. For more info please contact us at info@stardots.se
