Tomorrow Options exhibits WalkinSense mobility monitor for diabetics at Medica

16 November 2009

Sheffield company Tomorrow Options is exhibiting its WalkinSense portable patient mobility monitor at Medica 2009 this week.

Both easy to use and non-invasive, the wireless device gathers and processes data of lower limb movements during walking, measuring both patient mobility patterns and plantar pressure.

WalkinSense is used by health technicians that deal with diabetic foot disorders — a problem that causes foot ulcers and lower limbs amputations; with reports estimating diabetic foot being responsible for one limb amputation every 30 seconds.

Being lightweight and portable, the device allows patients to continue their everyday lives whilst being monitored. The quantitative and qualitative information gathered and processed by this device can be transferred (via Bluetooth or USB cable) to a computer to be analyzed with the user-friendly software supplied with the device.

The software was developed to be used by any health technician in a simple and easy way, without need of any computer expertise, saving valuable time for healthcare professionals.

Paulo Ferreira dos Santos, CEO, of Tomorrow Options said, “MEDICA offers us the perfect stage to platform our innovative and forward thinking products. With offices in both Portugal and the UK, we are proof that cross-continental business works and we are eager to find more opportunities of partnerships to commercialise our innovative products and to future developments."

Tomorrow Options will be located in hall 16 stand G10 at Medica, 18-21 November 2009 at the Messe Düsseldorf.
