Pinch - system fo chronic pain management by Loris Bottello
Pinch is a system for chronic pain management, composed of an interactive bracelet, a docking base for recharging and synchronising, and an online application. The bracelet allows a patient to record the pain level through the day, whenever and wherever is needed, together with pulse rate, drug consumption, physical activity level and quality of sleep. Through the docking base, data recorded in the bracelet is transferred to the servers of the system, and become consultable with a graphic interface which let the user analyse possible patterns and get meaningful insights, thanks to the possibility of adding comments and details to every record of pain. Collected data can be shared with doctors and relatives, so they can be updated in real time about the condition of the patient.
