MyRobotics is developping connected objects in the medical aera. It was created by a group of engineers, willing to make life better for everyone. We now present you our first medical device, which will help measure taste. It is called My Gus, and it is awesome !
Electrogustometry allows you to track taste disorder by ionizing the saliva on the tongue. It will improve the overall quality of life during and after any treatments affecting taste. It can be use in onclogy, smoke prevention, nutrition disorder, dentistry and much more.
Electrogustometry involves passing an electric current to the tongue in order to trigger a sensation of taste, to recognize deficits in specific parts of the tongue in defining electrical current limit thresholds experienced by the patient (called electrogustometric threshold). It is practiced in case of loss of taste.
Thanks to research lead by the group of Dr. MacLeod, new fields of applications have now emerged. Indeed, loss of taste in a patient may be related to treatment (as in chemotherapy), a disease affecting the salivary glands or a bad habit (such as tobacco). Our electrogustometer is a device used to set the sensitivity threshold at a taste sensation, and thereby detect any abnormality. Thus, the electrogustometer could become a key instrument both in tobacco prevention, adaptation of posology within cancer treatments or concerning nutrition problems.
But today no device allows sufficiently accurate measurements or meets the needs in these areas. Until My Gus arrive !
Download our Android App, connect My Gus to your smartphone via Bluetooth, and you are all set.
My Gus can run for days on one charge and fit in a pocket. And you just need our App to control it.
We can create on-demand apps according to new needs for doctors and researchers.
My Gus can deliver a current from 0 to 220 microampers at a 1% precision at a high repetability rate.
My Gus has been conceived to always deliver the current you asked for and protect the users.
