Depression is a common and disabling mood disorder that is the leading cause of disability worldwide (~350 million sufferers). Depression leads directly to impaired interpersonal functioning, causing a range of interpersonal disabilities, functioning in the workforce, and absenteeism. Despite the high prevalence, current clinical practice depends on self-reported history and clinical opinion, risking a range of subjective biases. Based on over 15 years of research, in a first to market, our team provides a solution based on objective, quantifiable visual and audio metrics that assist clinicians in the initial diagnosis of depression and ongoing monitoring of treatment progress.
Our solution – based on imaging wearable glasses coupled with custom recognition algorithms - increases the accuracy of the diagnosis by removing subjective biases, allows for increased patient throughput, reduces clinicians’ operating expenses and increases patient confidence.
