About the solution
When Rebecca was caring for both her parents, she realized that even if there were multiple options to structure and assist both caregivers and patients, when looking at their practicability, they weren't user-friendly and for patients with reduced mobility, it was almost impossible to use them. This stemmed from the fact that when looking at medication delivery, activity reporting, or event reminder input into the software, they couldn't perform it due to the lack of fine and gross motor skills.
One of the biggest mobility impact diseases is Parkinson's Disease, which affects more than 10 million people worldwide, and is set to rise by a fifth in 2025.
This is where Amethyst care is revolutionizing the field, as this solution uses voice technology to help care for people living with mobility-related illnesses, keeping them at home and making it easier to monitor and manage. It also allows for preventive measurements to be put in place. It integrates Medication Reminders, evening pop-ups to quench loneliness and improve interactions, all while at the same time assessing the behavioral and cognitive state of the patient and reporting it to the carer via an integrated digital phenotyping process of passive data.
