Abstract:
    Neurological disorders are among the fastest growing diseases in the world. Our product is a complete rehabilitation solution for such disorders, the heart of which is a vibration waves based therapy.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Neurological disorders are the 2nd most common diseases in the world and there is no readily available treatment for them. 1 in 323 children suffer from Cerebral Palsy, 1 in 6 suffer from Sensory Processing disorder and many more. Only 10-20% people diagnosed receive proper treatment.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   The primary benefactors people suffering from neurological disorders. A WHO report estimates that 1 Billion people suffer from neurological disorders. In Pakistan a recent survey indicated that nearly 20 million people suffer from these disorders. Doctors will also gain better way of treatment.
How will the solution works
    The device is based on the Neurotransmission Cognitive theory according to which vibration waves have enough energy to stimulate neural activity in the applied area, this neural activity can give rise to new neural maps within the nervous system in the affected region of the body or brain and thus bring it back to a functioning state. Disorders dont necessarily make the portion of brain or body affected "dead" it is only their link that is broken, a link which can be re-established.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our primary competitors are the providers of Electroconvulsive Therapy (giving mild electric shocks to patients) devices. Our safe and innovative solution comes free from the side affects of the mentioned therapy like memory loss, twitching, etc. Vibration waves have no side affects on humans.
