whatWeDo:problem

In Switzerland today, around 70,000 patients are affected by rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic inflammatory disease. Optimal treatment includes regular monitoring through imaging techniques such as X-rays or ultrasound. This monitoring is not only expensive but in some cases it also provides insufficient information and requires patients to regularly visit their doctor’s office.

whatWeDo:solutions

medignition is working on a mobile solution using infrared thermography and machine learning algorithms to enable patients to self-monitor chronic diseases. With such a system, the number of expensive imaging procedures can be reduced. Plus, patients only need to see their doctor when it is necessary or whenever they wish to do so.
