Teva, a pharmaceutical firm based in Israel will join hands with technological giants Intel to deal with Huntington’s disease with a new wearable device. The disease is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder that gradually kills brain cells. The aim of the partnership is to develop a smartwatch which monitors the movements and activities of the user. The data will be sent to Intel’s cloud based platform which will assist in analyzing the symptoms and help in treating the disorder. Today, its symptoms are monitored or analyzed only when the patient is physically present in front of the doctor. Continuous monitoring of the existing symptoms is not possible which may affect the health of the patient. However, this problem can be tackled effectively with the new wearable device that is under development.  The new product could potentially open the doors for new treatments and help the pharmaceutical industry to progress.
