Resumen:
Un grupo de investigación de un hospital público español ha desarrollado un algoritmo capaz de interpretar en tiempo real cambios de las constantes fisiológicas en tiempo real y predecir ataques de migraña. Esto permite que la premedicación (medicamento abortivo) mejore las condiciones de vida del paciente. El grupo de investigación busca empresas especializadas en diseño de productos e integración de sensores en el sector médico con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica.

Tittle:
Algorithm able to interpret real-time changes in physiological constants, and through machine learning, provide a prediction of migraine attack
Summary:
A research group at a public Spanish hospital have developed an algorithm able to interpret real-time changes in physiological constants to provide a prediction of migraine attack. This will allow pre medication (abortive medication) to improve life condition of patients. They are looking for technical collaboration with companies in product design and/or sensors integration.
Description:
Migraine is a primary headache disorder characterized by recurrent headaches that are moderate to severe. Its more severe and chronic form affects about 2% of world population and attacks can last from two to 72 hours.

There is no effective cure for migraine, thus, people try to reduce pain in different ways:
1) Avoiding possible triggers (environmental, behavioural, dietary);
2) Use abortive medications (Ibuprofen, Triptans);
3) Try dangerous preventive medications.

None of those remedies are effective for every migraneurs. However, doctors and patients agreed that if abortive medications are taken in advance pain severity could be reduced, thus, ameliorating life condition of sufferers.

At present there are no objective methods to predict an upcoming attack and act timely. Available solutions to patients try to reduce frequency and intensity of attacks:

1) Pharacological, abortive of preventive medications, which are not suitable for every patient, have considerable side effects on health and have an efficacy of about 40%;
2) neuro-stimulator devices, which have doubtful results, act on inner brain through electrical signals, not well accepted by medical community;
3) trigger trackers (on-paper or web applications), which rely on subjective feelings, act as calendar and provoke additional emotional charge on patient, which have to constantly monitor their daily life activities, in order to avoid triggers..


Much effort has been put into finding a solution to migraine pain. However, so far, major solutions rely on pharmacological treatments or neuro-stimulatory medical devices.

The research group of at a public Spanish hospital has recently provided the first scientific evidence, that an objective prediction of migraine attack is possible. They have developed an algorithm able to interpret real-time changes in physiological constants, and through machine learning, provide a prediction of migraine attack. This technology will be incorporated in patch sensors, allowing maximum wearability and comfort for patients.


The group is looking for collaboration with experienced companies working on the medical sector on product design and/or sensors integration. The cooperation will be under Technical cooperation agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
They have obtained migraine predictions with up to 47 minutes of advance, this is enough from a medical perspective.

The method to predict an upcoming attack and act timely, improving life condition of sufferers and allowing maximum wearability and comfort for patient.
