Detect diseas and analyze walking activity

M-Cube, the solution that analyzes the walking activity and detects disease

Each person has a walking profile that is unique and imprinted in his DNA. Until now, it has been difficult to identify this profile without sophisticated and expensive equipment. The M-Cube® is the first non-invasive solution to be introduced on the market that makes it possible to detect mobility disorders in a simple and precise way.

M-Cube® is a state-of-the-art connected insoles that the patient can put into the shoes and that will accurately analyze the walking profile and activity.

Detect diseas and analyze walking activity

The new generation of connected insoles comes with a dedicated mobile application to allow the patient and its family to view the data linked to its activity. In addition, health professionals will be able to analyze these results through a dedicated online dashboard.

A SOLUTION DEVELOPED IN COLLABORATION WITH HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

We work in collaboration with health professionals who support us in the development of this solution, like Professor Hervé Vespignani, former head of the neurology and neurological functional exploration department at Nancy University Hospital, and currently responsible for a neurology practice in Nancy.

Features of the M-Cube® solution

Our high performance microprocessor Brainux®, integrated in connected insoles, analyzes patient walking to deliver information to health professionals.

Our device is the first device that is able to:

  • Measure 12 parameters that constitute the walking profile of a person.
  • Follow-up in real time how these parameters are evolving.

For each foot, we measure:

  • Cadence, speed, impact force, stance, pronation/supination at the 4 stages of the contact time (when the foot is on the ground), balance left foot/right foot, flight time (when the foot is in the air), step length, step width…

The treatment process of a disease requires to keep a close eye on the patient and that can be difficult to maintain over time for the doctor and the patient (distance, communication…). Thanks to the M-Cube® solution, the healthcare professionals will be able to easily walk you thought the treatment process over time by analyzing the results of the walk.

  • Disease monitoring: A detailed report of the patient’s walking profile will be sent on a regular basis in order to provide the needed care for the patient according to the variations of the state of progress.
  • Rehabilitation follow-up: Similarly, the rehabilitation sessions can be adapted according to the timely situation of the patient and its evolution.

We all have a unique WPP (Walking Profile Parameters). There are more than 7000 nerve endings in each foot directly connected to the brain. There are many medical studies that explained and proved that there is a direct relation between the gait analysis and many neurological diseases like Parkinson, Alzheimer, Sclerosis, etc…

The M-Cube® solution can detect mobility disorders and therefore prevent the patient from getting diseases. Most of these studies used expensive and non-portable technologies. With our technology we are able to identify and find pathological diseases with an affordable and non-intrusive tool.

Our Brainux® microprocessor, very small and light (just 7 grams) is embedded in the insoles or shoes allows us to follow-up how the WPP are evolving over time. In this case, we can follow in real time how efficient are some medical treatments on the diseases. We can also have a warning feature for any person (without a particular disease) that is able to detect the beginning of mobility disorder that can be related to the start of a serious disease.

Thanks to the results of walk analysis, the dedicated application will be able to provide the patient with specific exercises to correct a locomotion disorder related to a musculoskeletal training problem (limp, leg X, …). This technology will become a diagnosis tool like a mobile scanner or a simple sphygmomanometer that will watch for your health daily to evaluate how a disease is evolving.

Advantages of the M-Cube® solution

Thanks to user-friendly device, real-time data collection, high-precision measurements and intelligent analysis, the M-Cube® solution adds value for patients and health professionals alike.

Patient
