IBM has developed a fingernail sensor that it says may help healthcare providers fine-tune treatment for certain cardiovascular and neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease.
The wearable, wireless device measures how a person’s fingernail bends and moves throughout the day – a key indicator of grip strength. The prototype sensor continually collects data and feeds it into artificial intelligence algorithms, picking up patterns that reveal the wearer’s grip strength and movement over time. The sensor is designed to be worn throughout the day without interfering with daily tasks.
