ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a fatal incurable neurodegenerative disease. The disease usually strikes people between the ages of 40 and 70, and it’s estimated that as many as 30,000 Americans have the disease.1  It leads to progressive paralysis and typically results in death within 3-5 years. ALS progression is highly variable between patients, a fact which complicates drug development and clinical testing of new candidate therapies.

The most common way to measure ALS progression today is by ​using a subjective questionnaire called the ALS Functional Rating Scale ​(ALS-FRS)​. To complete the questionnaire, patients must reach a clinic with a trained ALS specialist and answer questions about their ability to speak, walk, breath, dress, and so on.  Unfortunately, this method is limited due to infrequent measurements, a challenging clinic visit for patients who often have limited mobility, the test is subjective and the data is not stored in a single repository.

SAP Architect, Meirav Daniel, and a team of volunteers from SAP Labs Israel, wanted to make a difference.  “We wanted to inspire people and show how mobile technology and cloud can revolutionize the course of a disease.”

Meirav and team worked with Prize4Life, a non-profit organization, and partner HP (Hewlett-Packard), and developed an app on SAP HANA Cloud platform called the ALS Mobile Analyzer. This mobile app enables caregivers to monitor patients daily in their own environment, then record and upload data on the patient’s condition. With the app, caregivers can immediately record how patients respond to stimuli. If there is any deterioration in their motor or mental skills, which are the main characteristics tracked as patients’ physical and mental conditions worsen gradually over time.  The app also records reactions or changes that are triggered by certain conditions like changes in activities, foods, and more.

This valuable data is collected using sensors.  In the future, this data will be analyzed by clinicians and doctors to monitor patients, respond quicker and serve as a basis for future research and development of new treatments. ​

     I have ADHD, OCD, depression, primary biliary cirrhosis (autoimmune disease) and ALS. I didn’t have health care I just thought it was a stroke, but it started with my voice. When it started to get worse I went to a neurologist. and was diagonised with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. i was able to walk with assistance nothing was really working to help my condition.I went off the riluzole (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic, Just 7 weeks into the Herbal formula treatment I had great improvements with my slurred speech, this is a breakthrough for all amyotrophic lateral sclerosis sufferers, visit Health Herbal Clinic official website www. healthherbalclinic. net or email info@ healthherbalclinic. net.

    I was diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) last year september. My family doctor prescribed riluzole. rilozole was unable to help me, I have tried it again last 2 months with the same result. I am so fortunate that my progression seems to be very slow.
    A friend of mine introduced me to Best Health Herbal Centre, then i purchased ALS herbal remedy and it was sent to me. My life transformed after six weeks of usage. No more ALS till now…Thanks to Best Health Herbal Centre,please purchase your ALS herbal remedy asap via their website ww w .besthealthherbalcentre. co m

    i was diagnosed 2011. i was diagnosed with the bulbar form of ALS and was given one year to live. My symptoms progressed quickly. Soon i was having difficulty breathing, swallowing and even walking short distances. With the help of Natural Herbal Garden natural herbs I have been able to reverse my symptoms using diet, herbs, which i feel has made the most difference. The ALS natural formula immensely helped my condition, it reversed my ALS. my slurred speech. And then the inability to eat without getting choked, breathing, and coughing. gradually disappeared. Visit NATURAL HERBAL GARDENS via their official web-site www. naturalherbalgardens. com. I’m now playing golf again. and i turned 69 today. i am glad to get my life back DON’T GIVE UP HOPE!!!
