Improving the health of patients who suffer from neurological disorders. By applying an inclusive and personal monitor we make the treatment of neurological disorders more efficient, and personalized for each patient.
Montfort leverages smartphone’s integral sensors, in order to provide a digital version for standard neurological tests. These tests are Personal, Real-time, Inexpensive, and can be conducted by anyone, anywhere.
Physicians use our Clinic version and pay-per-test. Patients use the Home version and pay-per-month. Our products can be embedded into the products of pharma industry, medical devices manufacturers, and HMO’s, using SAAS.
Over one billion people suffer from neurological disorders, with few professionals to diagnose and treat them. Currently, there are two main alternatives for neurological evaluation: Either the physician conducts a test in the clinic, which is subjective and not quantitative, or the subject is sent to a special laboratory. Using these special labs increases the evaluation costs and delays the time for obtaining the results, often making them no longer relevant. As a result, and due to the fact that these labs are rare, few patients are properly evaluated, thus delaying the detection and diagnostics. We offer physicians an accessible and digital test platform, turning any office into a lab. Evaluating the subject at a random time in the clinic does not represent the actual status of the patient in his\her daily life, so physicians need to relay upon the subject’s self-report, which is also subjective. We offer a platform for sampling the subject during his\her regular activity, thus filling in this gap. The collective data which we provide in a standard manner, is making clinical research simpler, allowing to use samples collected by anyone, anywhere.
HOW IT WORKS
We provide a digital version for standard neurological tests. Our app handles the test protocol, uses the smartphone integral sensors in order to record the test, and sends the raw date to the cloud. Our proprietary algorithms then analyse the raw data and extract the needed biomarkers. The Physician can access these results from a simple portal and obtain clinical insight for the patient condition.
WHAT WE MEASURE
Our forte is in gait evaluation. AppTUG is a simple-to-use app that can provide medical gait indicators, currently obtainable only in special gait laboratories, in any clinic, or from the patient’s natural environment.

“For the last two years, physicians in our institute are using Montfort’s app. It is easy to use and informative. The app provides indicators that are unrecognized and unquantified by standard neurological tests, thus helping us in diagnosis and monitoring neurological conditions”
“…a smartphone is attached to the body with a velcro strap enables dynamic and easy continuous measurements. The interface, I find, user friendly – encountered no problems. Data- wise, I am very happy with the ability to customize the data processing along with my needs.”
