6Degrees has developed a wireless motion-based wearable band to simply enable people with disabilities to control any smart device; phones, computers, tablets, and more. The wearable is adjusting according to personal abilities, translates limited motion to a full range, or filters out unwanted motion and tremors. It connects with a simple Bluetooth connection, without relying on any external condition or outside systems to read the motion. We collect personal data during each use to monitor and analyze changes.
300M people around the world have lost fine motor skills due to paralysis, injury, and disease. As a result, they have lost access to technology and all that comes with it: the ability to communicate, to integrate into the workforce, etc. 6Degrees is at the stage of development and expected to go to market by the end of the year. To this point, we tested over 250 users in the US, Israel, and Europe, and currently looking at long-term user experience.
MyMove is a wireless wearable band designed to allow people with hand-related disabilities to fully control any smart device to empower independence and quality of life. Thanks to the ability to analyze motion, we enhance the Physical Therapy field that currently still uses traditional treatment approaches and manual tools and lack measurable data. With real-time results of each patient to indicate treatment efficiency, progress rate, and healing success. Using VR gamification during Physical Therapy increases patient engagement, motivation, and fun.
