ABOUT US

SIMPLE TECHNOLOGY, BIG IMPACT

DEDICATED TEAM OF ENGINEERS, DOCTORS AND SCIENTISTS

BRINGING SMILES BACK FOR PEOPLE WITH PARKINSON'S

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 18th 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.

Our team combines the skills of neuroscientists, design engineers, and medical professionals. 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 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.

OUR SUPPORTERS

The Charco team are supported by people from Parkinson’s groups, healthcare professionals,
researchers and many more.

Together we can achieve our goal.

DEVELOPED WITH PEOPLE WITH PARKINSON’S

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.

Developed with and for people with Parkinson’s
