Wearable to track tremors

About the solution

Fawad, an electrical engineer, created this device because he belongs to a family with a history of tremor patients – both his uncles and his grandfather suffered from the disease. So the inventor knew how difficult it was to communicate progress to one’s doctor.

The Trequant works by tracking and analyzing tremor patterns to make it easier for patients to communicate critical information to their doctor, save data on the cloud, and get notifications when it’s time to take medication, by being connected to a mobile app.

The engineer started working for this device in 2014, having launched a Kickstarter campaign to help develop the product in 2016.

“Every time we visited the doctor, we could never properly explain to him what he wanted. There was always a gap as doctors wanted specific information and we could only give vague feedback. If the shaking had gone up, how much worse was it than the previous visit?”, Fawad explained.
