Nanotec Industries, an innovative nanotechnology pioneer, has unveiled a working prototype of a new nano-based monitoring device that according to Tokyo-based investment fund, Hawk Trade, is set to revolutionize the way in which care providers are able to monitor patients.
The technology revolves around a device roughly around the same size as an ordinary Band-Aid which is able to detect the type of erratic muscle movements normally associated with disorders such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease with a view to alerting caregivers who can then dispense treatment or use onboard nanoparticles loaded with the medication the patient requires to deliver treatment.
A Hawk Trade business analyst said, “We’re delighted with the progress being made at Nanotec Industries. The trials they’ve conducted have proven the device to be 100% reliable with no false alarms.”
A Nanotec Industries spokesperson said that the challenge had been to overcome the physical challenges presented by the need to work with hard and rigid electronics, which were unacceptably cumbersome, unwieldy and uncomfortable for patients to wear.
According to Nanotec Industries, the device’s sensors are constructed from nano-membranes attached to motion sensors. These are directly attuned to the patient’s physiology and, upon the onset of a seizure, can send a signal to a thermal actuator that delivers a dose of the appropriate drugs to relieve the patient.
Hawk Trade says it will not be drawn on the subject of IPOs for the company. “We recognize that developments of this magnitude are exciting and attractive to investors but both we and Nanotec Industries have no intentions of discussing floatation at this time,” said the business analyst.
