In 2013 we met a gentleman who said, “I am very happy now but I look angry because Parkinson’s disease took away my smile”. Since then, our aim has been to bring smiles back for people with Parkinson’s.
Charco Neurotech is named after professor Charcot who, in the 19th century, was first to notice the therapeutic effects of vibratory stimulation on Parkinson’s. Since his discovery, there have been many studies around the ability of stimulation to alleviate the movement symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
As you’ll see below, our team combines a truly diverse range of skillsets and backgrounds. Together we are developing the CUE1 device, with and for people with Parkinson’s, to improve their quality of life. We believe in simple, non-invasive technologies like the CUE1 that can help improve quality of life for people with long term conditions, and to this end, we are continuously researching new treatment methods based in science.
Our development process starts and ends by listening to and testing with people with Parkinson’s, with your needs as our top priority, so our inbox is always open. Please contact us to learn more and to have a chat with us.
In all the work we do, we try to focus on what people with Parkinson’s really need.
From the addition of the medication reminder feature to the development of the app and the colour of CUE1, we are always working with you to find the best solution for our users.
The Charco team has grown organically with people who share the same vision. We are a group of design engineers and doctors with a mission to bring a big impact to people with long term conditions by using simple technology to have a big impact.
