500 More receive Covid-19 Grant

June 24th 2020

Future Space resident, 500 More Ltd has won a grant to work with Oxford Brookes University on an Artificial Intelligence (AI) development that monitors how you walk after having Covid-19.

What is the project?

How you walk (or gait) is an indicator of recovery from diseases such as Covid-19. The funding will enable the joint team to develop an app to analyse walking, allowing doctors to track how patients recover. The project utilises state of the art AI to objectively measure walking quality, a key health indicator.

500 More has been selected as one of a number of innovative start-up businesses to receive funding from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, to fast-track the development of innovations born out of the coronavirus crisis, while supporting the UK’s next generation of cutting-edge start-ups.

Why is it important?

Greg Smart, CEO 500 More Digital said: “The DataGait project will help patients who are recovering from Covid-19 by giving them simple walking tasks to perform at home, allowing clinicians to track their recovery safely and remotely.

“This is a great example of our mission to drive purposeful digital innovation. Innovate UK funding will allow us to get this product in the hands of patients and doctors more quickly.”

Professor Helen Dawes, Academic Director of Oxford Clinical Allied Technology and Trial Services Unit (OxCATTS) at Oxford Brookes said: “How people move and walk is a vital sign which reflects their health. Innovatively we are developing a phone app which will allow clinicians to accurately monitor emerging ill health, symptoms or change in a long-term condition through changes in walking remotely. This gait app will support the management of a number of diseases and conditions at home preventing unnecessary visits to the clinic.”
