Unpacking a Longstanding Healthcare Question

One of the best things about human beings is how we try to get better under all situations. You see, when someone is able to grow in such a consistent manner, they basically end up making themselves eligible for some significant milestones along the way, but if we take a second and assess these milestones in hindsight, we probably won’t find anything as significant as technology. Technology’s emergence was such a clear-cut anomaly because of reasons that were always bigger than its ingenious skill-set. For instance, they revolved a great deal around the creation’s unprecedented reach, which somehow spanned across our entire spectrum. By saying that, we also bring a highly-critical sector of healthcare into the conversation. Technology and healthcare’s link-up, in particular was a game-changer, as it really did a lot in convincing people about the creation’s reliability, and while that was pretty much the primary backdrop, it would also go on to revamp our entire outlook of the sector itself. Nevertheless, even after that is achieved, the link-up will continue to deliver all the right goods. In fact, one recent FDA approval should only help this trend moving forward.

Rune Labs, a California-based neurology company, has officially bagged FDA’s approval for its latest software in StrivePD, which is predicated upon helping people who are suffering from the Parkinson’s disease. According to certain reports, the software functions within the parameters of your Apple watch, and it is well-equipped in regards to tracking sensitive factors such as tremors so to give the patient and their doctor every bit of information they might need for an effective treatment. The device also follows a passive data collection model, therefore relieving the patient of any pressure to track each and every fluctuation. Interestingly enough, while Apple isn’t actively involved in the project, the tech giant did go out of its way to update its system’s software, and consequentially, make it fall in line with FDA requirements. Apart from it, Apple even wrote a letter of support for Rune Labs’ approval application to the administration.

“As we have seen in oncology, the introduction of large quantities of real-world data has the power to transform drug development and fundamentally change disease prognosis. This clearance is a major step toward building a similar paradigm in neurology,” said Brian Pepin, CEO of Rune Labs. “With all of the data we will collect and the patients we will reach through this clearance, we will make sure the right participants enroll in trials and help our pharma and medtech partners run more efficient trials with higher-quality outcomes data.”

Talk about StrivePD’s functionality, it uses Apple’s Movement Disorder API, which was launched back in 2018 to help independent researchers gain more information regarding Parkinson’s disease. The hope here, as you can guess, is to keep looking for a more apt way of treating the stated condition.
