1. The 1st reported real-time pain mapping in 3D space using Kinect2 as a motion-capture sensor. An activation event (voice, pressing of button) records the body segment motion that correlates to heat-mapping signatures, facial grimace, increased heart rate & pupillary dilation. A reproducible map of pain location & intensity that is validated by empiric physiologic data is valuable when evaluating pain as a metric of response in therapy & can also be used to rule-out malingering, such as fraudulent Workman's Comp Claims.
2. A democratized NIH Stroke Scale calculator with efficiency algorithms, clinical guardrails & UX/UI design to allow the most inexperienced user to reliably assess a stroke patient faster & with higher accuracy than the original pen-to-paper version. Adoption & use in pre-hospital settings by paramedics & other first-responders would reduce the amount of time required to administer the life & limb clot-busting medication, t-PA.

The approach, the traction, the current products and the witty team put PersonalPN on a path to success and making a difference in our world.
