Smart diagnostic system for healthcare
Project launch date:
Intelmed system enables probability diagnostics by communicating with a user, on the basis of described symptoms, risk factors and/or laboratory tests, and provides reference data about medications, diets, medical procedures, physiotherapy, and health supplements.
A. Knowledge base pre-formed by automatic extraction of data from sources in the world’s major specialized medical databases and the Internet.
B. Smart polling system ensuring probability diagnostics using the minimal essential and sufficient number of questions about the current user’s health condition.
C. The system’s interface and monetization instruments in line with the up-to-date E-Patients, MHealth trends and concepts providing opportunity for managing one’s own health together with providers of medical products and services.
In 2008–2011, engineering approaches to automatic data retrieval were applied towards establishing content-addressable networks containing knowledge on molecular genetic interactions, inter-disease and nanobiology units relations. Such work was performed in the framework of International research projects.
The product is going to be available in Russian and in English via website, mobile applications, as well as a desktop version for medical professionals.
The system beta-version release is scheduled for November 2013. It is going to include the knowledge base on 200 most common diseases with the relevant background data and information on existing therapies.
The project was nominated among the five finalists of the Russian stage of IBM SmartCamp.

New Generation Hematology Analyzer
Project launch date: December 2013
Hemovisor is a multi-parameter automated hematology analyzer designed for in vitro diagnostic use in medium volume clinical laboratories. Based on computer vision technologies it does recognize, enumerate and differentiate blood cells and count them. The device automatically performs analysis of a digital image captured, creates a report file and sends it to the printer.
The device consists of microscope with the motorized stage and led lamp, electric field generator, digital camera, processing unit, and the touch screen with graphic user’s interface.
Comparing to existing advanced developments
Hemovisor does not require any consumables and reagents.
Hemovisor does not require stainer to make a slides for analysis, it works with liquid samples.
Hemovisor defines the concentration of Hemoglobin (HGB) and calculates the Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) simultaneously with Erythrocytes (RBC) count.
Hemovisor pretends to be a replacement device for the hematology analyzers that use conductometry as a basic method for the blood cells counting. It’s safe, easy to operate and cost effective in maintenance.
Besides of the blood cells counting, Hemovisor provides wide range of physical and rheological parameters of cells, and can be used in cytological gynecological screening, urinary sediment analysis and others.
Release of the ready-to-use prototype – April 2014.

Speech-to-Sign Language Translation Software
Project Launch Date: December 2012.
Why we created Surdophone?
There are about 2 million deaf people around the world. Their primal language is sign language.
Usual, daily actions, such as making calls, watching TV, visiting doctor or lawyer are very difficult for that kind of people.
A major problem for deaf people is a communicational barrier - native to deaf people, sign language used by very low amount of people outside of their community.
Project's goal: to create a modern technical means of communication between deaf and hearing people that create comfortable environment for communicating and developing.
What Suprdophone does?
Surdophone transforms sounding speech or displayed text into sign language translation and demonstrates it by animated avatar.
Plenty of products are developing on base of Surdophone:
- Mobile application.
- "deaf - communicator" for social services (medicine, financial, etc).
- Surdophone TV - digital translation for TV companies.
- Educational software for studying sign language.
