Fierce Biotech: Trayt debuts mobile app to track and help treat autism, ADHD
Joesph Keenan [April 20, 2018]
Trayt, a Redwood City, California-based data analytics company, has released a mobile application designed to help diagnose, track and treat patients with autism, ADHD and other neurodevelopmental brain disorders.
The app allows patients and caretakers to monitor behavioral and nonbehavioral symptoms by using a comorbid rating scale and can accurately measure the effectiveness of treatments. The collected data is analyzed and viewed on a dashboard that gives progress reports and personalized, actionable insights, the company said.
Because patients with brain-based disorders tend to be diagnosed and treated by different care teams that often don’t communicate, overlapping conditions can be overlooked and care may not be optimized.
“As a parent of a child with a multisystem neurological disorder, I’ve experienced firsthand the defeated feeling of walking out of a doctor’s appointment after being redirected time and time again to see a new physician to treat a new symptom,” Malekeh Amini, founder and CEO of Trayt, said in a statement. “Instead of considering whether these conditions were related or causal, they were treated individually and the coordination and care in between was completely left up to me.”
Trayt is designed to standardize measurement with an overall view of the patient that takes into account all factors that may contribute to more successful outcomes.
