StudioTulsa on Health: Getting to Know Chase Curtiss and the Sway Balance System Mobile App

On today's edition of StudioTulsa on Health, we welcome Chase Curtiss, the CEO and founder of Sway Medical, a Tulsa-based software company that is focused on, per its website, "reinventing the way medical outcomes are measured. Our mission is to advance outcomes-based patient care with practical and sustainable medical-grade mobile diagnostics." Therefore Curtiss mainly talks with guest host John Henning Schumann about Sway's "core product" --- it's an FDA-cleared app known as the Sway Balance System, and it's meant to help athletes, patients, and medical professionals monitor the human body's musculo-skeletal, neurological, and vestibular functioning (or malfunctioning, as the case may be). It's also an application that seems ideally suited for all the concerns we've heard lately about sports-related concussions in America, at all levels of competition. By simply using an iOS mobile device --- such as an iPad or iPhone --- users of the Sway Balance System app can quickly attain or analyze detailed information regarding a given patient's stability/equilibrium. (And an Android-friendly version of this app is due early next year, as Curtiss affirms.)
