Mtg: Lift Labs: Defeating Human Tremors

by @ 7:08 am. Filed under ALL, BioEngineering, Computers/Software, Electronics Design
 

TUESDAY November 5, 2013
SCV Consultants’ Network of Silicon Valley
Speaker: Anupam Pathak, Lift Labs
Time: 7:00 PM
Cost: none
Place: Agilent Technologies, 5301 Stevens Creek Blvd., Santa Clara
RSVP: not required
Web: www.CaliforniaConsultants.org/events.cfm/item/202

Up to 10 million people in the US suffer from tremor, typically due to Essential Tremor or Parkinson’s Disease.  The condition typically worsens with age, and currently there are few options for relief other than drugs or brain surgery.
This talk will discuss the new Lift Labs invention that can actively cancel the user’s tremor by stabilizing the object being held. Clinical trial testing has shown tremor cancellation on average of 70%.
Anupam will also talk about the formation of Lift Labs, a great success story as it was formed using funding from the NIH Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Grant that was awarded shortly after he received his Ph.D.  The awarding of each NIH SBIR Grant is a highly competitive process.
