Apptomics has developed a mobile application, called MyPD, to help patients, caregivers and health care professionals manage treatment-related motor complications in Parkinson’s disease. It’s also developing platforms to help patients manage epilepsy and migraines.
The company’s Parkinson’s solution involves a glove a patient wears that can record tremors and symptoms. The patient can use a mobile device to report side effects to medication and symptoms, and the doctor can combine what the patient reports with the data collected to determine the best course of treatment, Mitsi said.
The app can be downloaded to any mobile phone or tablet, said Mitsi, a biologist who has a master’s in applied medical science, a doctorate in cell sciences and a master’s in business administration. The fledgling company was founded last year, she said, and has been able to achieve its milestones on a “shoestring budget.”
Gold sponsors of the event included East Boston Savings Bank, People’s United Bank and TD Bank. Silver-level sponsors were the North Shore Technology Council, Salem Five, Speaking of Leadership and West Hill Technology Council. The media sponsor is The Salem News. There were a number of co-sponsors as well.
