MABLE Interface

MABLE is a Care Management System for people under care and their caregivers to connect, get organized, reminisce, and stay safe. While there are apps that look to solve the individual challenges of people under care, MABLE is a comprehensive, ‘all-in-one’ solution that can grow as needs change and technology advances

Data & Research

MABLE Data Views

When users interact with MABLE, rich data is collected. As more and more families use MABLE, researchers will have access to the ‘big data’ they need to deepen their understanding of dementia and ultimately improve the lives of those living with and affected by dementia.

Our Team

The MABLE team came together to challenge Dementia, each other, and a 30hr time limit on November 7-8, 2015.

We are an experienced team of designers, business people, and technologists with a passion for changing the world!

MABLE Selected – MedCity Collaborate 2 Innovate Winners Announced!

C2N

Winners announced for £2m programme to commercialise life sciences discoveries

A cure for pancreatic cancer, virtual reality rehabilitation, data-driven robotic surgery, and futuristic wound-healing technology are just four of the 16 projects selected for MedCity’s ‘Collaborate to Innovate’ programme.

The £2m programme, led by King’s College London and part-funded by ERDF and HEFCE, is connecting 16 life sciences SMEs with leading academics to address a specific challenge related to their product or service. They will be working with academics at King’s College London, Imperial College London, Queen Mary University of London, and University College London to develop and commercialise their innovations.

Over 70 companies applied to the programme and were matched with suitable academic partners to develop 6-12 month collaborative proposals worth up to £100,000. A panel of academics and industry representatives selected 16 projects, based on technological potential, R&D challenges, commercial potential, and impact.

Sarah Haywood, CEO of MedCity said:

“London and the South East has a strong life sciences ecosystem of innovative companies developing the next generation of therapeutic and healthcare products. We have everything from new drugs, development of healthcare services based on AI and VR technologies, new devices and smartphones used to help people manage their care.  

Sometimes you just need a helping hand with finding a key piece of the puzzle, to get the idea from mind to market. I’m excited that we have been able to match 16 ground-breaking SMEs with academics from our leading universities to develop their innovations and make them commercially viable.”

The projects selected for the programme are:

Andiamo and Queen Mary University of London

Andiamo develops 3D printed orthotics for patients who suffer from cerebral palsy. They will be collaborating with Dr Richard Twycross-Lewis and QMUL’s sports and exercise medicine unit, with expertise in biomechanics and movement analysis, and together they aim to improve and validate the product to enhance its commercial offering to patients globally.

LIfT BioSciences and King’s College London

LIfT’s mission is to cure pancreatic cancer by 2021. They are developing the use of innate immunity in the treatment of cancer, first targeting pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). The process is a transfusion of white blood cells from people who are naturally immune to cancer to boost the immune system of people with weaker immune systems. They will work with Professor Farzin Farzaneh, Professor of Molecular Medicine at King’s College London, on an ambitious study to provide in-vitro evidence that Leukocyte Infusion therapy (LiFT) works in PDAC, the patented platform could have major implications for the future treatment of all solid tumours.

MABLE Care and King’s College London

 

The team has developed a prototype Care Management System App for patients with dementia and their families to connect, get organised, reminisce, stay safe and improve their wellbeing. As more users interact with the System – MABLE – ‘big data’ will be collated to enhance researchers’ understanding of dementia and ultimately improve the lives of those living with and affected by dementia. They will work with Professor Robert Stewart, Lead co-investigator at Institute of Psychiatry Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London, to develop the prototype and bring it closer to commercialisation, drawing on input from dementia patients and their carers.

MABLE Carer – the future of ambient carer learning in context

MABLE Carer is a mobile App providing ambient contextual learning to carers. The first application will be focused upon Dementia Carers. MABLE Carer monitors live conversations between the carer and person under care (through speech recongition and eventually audio analysis), processes that through a custom-developed Natural Language Classifier and uses the resultant classification to provide immediate in-depth and contextually relevant learnings. Through this mechanism Carers can naturally learn to adapt to the challenges of Dementia care in-situ with less risk of escalation.
