Do you know up to 10 million people in the US suffer from uncontrollable tremor? Hear how LiftWare that is making a real difference in the quality of life for people suffering from movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease or Essential Tremor (ET).
If your loved ones suffer from this condition then you must attend this talk to learn how to help them.
Lift Labs has developed a new device with a non-invasive active stabilization technology that can cancel the user's tremor by stabilizing an object being held.
Google has acquired Lift Labs, the company that created a spoon to cancel out shakiness and make it easier for those with hand tremors to eat.
Clinical trial testing has shown tremor cancellation on average of 70%. This not only significantly improves a patient’s functioning, but can also restore his dignity. This talk will describe the formation of Lift Labs, their core technology, and their current success with initial users.
Speaker: Anupam Pathak, PHD, PE. Founder/CEO of Lift Labs.
"It really boils down to the impact, what I wanted to do. I was really working on technologies that had a lot of applications but I chose to pursue this one because it has such a direct impact on somebody's quality of life."
Anupam Pathak became passionate about developing new technologies for social impact. Lift Labs has just launched Liftware, an active cancellation system that allows people to function despite debilitating hand tremors that neurological conditions bring.
Anupam received his BS and MS from UC Berkeley, and his Ph.D. from the Univ. of Michigan. He studied a diverse range of topics within Mechanical Engineering, including materials, controls systems, thermal science and design. Outside of work, Anupam loves to teach hands-on science to children. In the past he co-founded a non-profit called Explorabox, whose mission is to provide hands-on science kits to children growing up in economic hardship.
