We've found rich information hidden in the way our fingers interact with smart devices, that allows for motor impairment tracking and potentially early detection of neurodegenerative disease onset.

Our algorithms detect the subtle psychomotor impairment typical of these diseases by analysing the timing of keystrokes. No information of what you are typing is captured. No hardware changes required.
About us

earlybird.io is built upon a the neuroQWERTY project, a product of the Madrid-MIT M+Visión Fellowship in Translational Biomedical Imaging. The team at earlybird.io concieved the project as part of this fellowship, and through earlybird.io we plan on making our tools available for the benefit of research and clinical practice.
