因應邁入高齡社會柏瑞醫整合肌少症檢測推一站式智慧化多功能理學檢查系統

28 March 2017

根據國家發展委員會的中華民國人口推估(105~150年),台灣的老年人口佔總人口比例預計將在107年超過14%,屆時台灣將正式邁入高齡社會。這也意味著台灣政府與社會,都必須儘早開始正視伴隨高齡社會而來的各種老人醫療問題,除了糖尿病、高血壓等常見疾病外,其他較少人知的老年人口疾病,例如肌少症,也都需要受到關注。

柏瑞醫執行長張漢威認為,政府在推動長照的腳步應該走得更快,以趕上人口老化的速度,並要儘快打造符合高齡社會需求的醫療設備與生活環境。

張漢威也表示,肌少症(Sarcopenia)是長者應注意的潛在健康危機之一,其主要特徵為肌肉質量、強度與性能喪失,而一般肌少症會悄悄地逐漸惡化,若被隱藏在高脂肪體態中,也容易受到忽視。

國家衛生研究院近年來投入促進中老年人健康老化研究,指出「身體功能衰退與肌少症為老化社會的重要醫療問題」,也透過流行病學調查,並基於國際評估方式,建立了符合台灣自身的老年肌少症臨床診斷標準,定義出肌少症診斷項目中肌肉質量、步行速度與手握力之切點。

柏瑞醫針對肌少症檢測,推出一站式智慧化多功能理學檢查系統QCheck,除了測量身高、體重、體脂、基礎代謝、體水份等一般生理參數之外,還整合了肌少症檢測,而評估的三大指標即是上述肌肉質量、步行速度與手握力。透過整合多種功能,QCheck可提高醫院內坪效的使用,也減輕護理師的工作負擔。

QCheck利用生物電阻抗原理測量肌肉質量,此外也配備有雷射投影定位,可清楚標示站立點,幫助步行速度測量。將手握力與步行速度的測量結果輸入系統後,系統就會幫助判斷是否有隱性病因,例如慢性代謝症候群。

QCheck頂部還搭載了3D人體掃描系統,使用的是Microsoft Kinect的3D鏡頭,可精準、快速地量測人體模型和身高,並自動記錄到系統裡,省去人工紙本作業

張漢威表示目前已經有10幾家健檢中心與診所,特別是老化醫學相關的診所,開始導入QCheck使用,而未來也會推出家庭版的QCheck,並計劃在網路商店、量販店等地方販售。

柏瑞醫提供數據處理平台協助醫師開發精準醫學研究新價值

18 May 2017

「精準醫療」(Precision Medicine)是近年醫學界熱門的發展方向之一,傳統醫療主要以病患症狀描述與常規檢查,來判斷疾病的種類,精準醫療則進一步參照更多數據資料,透過人體基因資料庫進行比對與實證分析,以準確地瞭解疾病的發生緣由,並深入探究疾病的因果,讓疾病的預防與診療能夠更為精準,進一步提供個人化醫療措施

精準醫療需要融合各種面向數據資料,進行智能化運算分析,因此數據處理工具即十分重要;具有精準醫療專長的柏瑞醫(Biomdcare)執行長張漢威指出,精準醫療在醫療界定義,須具體含括數據領域必須包含,家族病史、醫療保險歷史、DNA微生物資料、生活型態、環境資料等五大面向,精準醫療數據範疇與資料量十分驚人,因此相關醫療人員進行相關研究時,常遭遇到數據蒐集、運算、分析等難題。

張漢威指出,柏瑞從數據切入,將自己定位成醫學界的軍火商,其推出CareStore X1 Studio平台融合五個健康關鍵數據,能夠有效率檢驗去較難以偵測的病灶因果關聯,還能夠創造出老藥新用、老醫材新應用,或是降低併發症發展機會等用途。

關於數據的具體使用方法,該平台主要應用微軟(Microsoft)R Server與Azure技術,透過分析藥物資料與利用疾病模型等方式,以減少老藥新用在前端研發所花費的時間與金錢,幫助藥廠取得先機。

老藥由於已通過安全測試,但還要找出可治療哪些新的適應症,並進行臨床實驗檢驗,例如Metformin原本是針對糖尿病患者設計作為降血糖用藥,藥物使用過程發現該藥可抑制人類肝癌細胞的增殖,透過該平台可分析藥物資料與疾病模型等方式,加速實驗過程,讓研究直接推進到臨床實驗階段。

除此之外,舊醫材新應用領域案例,醫學研究發現心房顫動有中風有高度相關,透過該平台數據驗證後,業者血壓計外加上一個心房顫動感測器,即讓舊醫材來預防與檢測中風

張漢威指出,該平台不僅作為醫學領域的「計算機」,更可做為一個學術知識交流平台;過去醫療研究從研究設計開始,很多知識累積和溝通僅在團隊內,該平台將專業知識累積,需要分析試驗標的直接透過人工智慧完成研究設計,未來透過該平台將會聚集更多的科學家發現,透過平台分享、彙整與再分析及再利用,讓醫學科學家可站在巨人肩膀人更有效率完成研究。

柏瑞醫用大數據、物聯網以及雲端運算平台 突破醫療契機利用大數據、物聯網以及雲端運算平台協助科學家偵測肌少症、延緩失智症發展並找尋醫療突破的契機

22 April 2017

柏瑞醫股份有限公司創立於2016年3月,目前專注於三個不同的領域,分別是是肌少症(Sacropenia)檢測、失智症(Dementia)的診斷與認知訓練設備,以及大數據雲端運算平台。

Qcheck 測量老年人口肌少症的利器 人體的肌肉質量、強度與性能會隨著年齡增長而產生退化性損失,是老化過程中所伴隨發生的一種現象;目前估計台灣患有肌少症的人口大約有五十萬。針對肌少症的偵測,柏瑞醫推出Qcheck以提供全面性人體組成成分測量與分析; Qcheck不但能夠對應任何型態的健康健檢站,還將物聯網的概念融入設計的過程,足以因應未來進行大數據分析的需求, Qcheck 使用Microsoft Surface電腦並搭戴Windows 10 專業版本作業系統提供企業等級的安全防護的保障。

SenseCare 失智症的評量與認知訓練工具 失智症目前是聯合國資料中世界死亡排名第六的疾病,地球上每三秒鐘就有一個人被確診為失智症患者。傳統上針對失智症所設計的認知訓練,對於受測者真正的腦部活動也無法有效地衡量,以視覺化的方式呈現受測者的腦部活動過程是迫切卻又重要的發展方向。為了解決上述的問題,柏瑞醫結合Microsoft 所推出的Windows Mixed Reality與fNIRS,推出SenseCare以協助診斷失智症並對患者提供較為精確有效的認知訓練。目前SenseCare正在進行各項上市前的測試,相信未來針對這項對全球各國都相當將能提出更為精確有效的解決方案。

CareStore 專為科學家建置的大數據分析平台最後,柏瑞醫建置於Microsoft Azure的CareStore 雲端大數據分析平台的未來發展具備更大的想像空間,所可能創造的影響也十分深遠。CareStore雲端大數據分析平台,目前以醫生、藥廠以及各類的科學家為主要的顧客;在CareStore進行各類乾式與濕式實驗,除了能夠以兼具效率以及效果的方式找尋過去較難以偵測的病灶關聯,還能夠創造出老藥新用或是降低併發症發展機會等成果。未來CareStore這個平台將會聚集更多的科學家以及他們的各類發現;透過不同發現之間的分享、彙整與再分析及再利用,相信對於醫學以及各相關學科的發展將有機會造就出很大的影響。

大數據資料的收集、儲存與分析在目前柏瑞醫所推出的三項產品中扮演著重要的角色,Microsoft Azure平台更是其中不可或缺的重要元素,透過柏瑞醫、Microsoft Azure以及其他相關產品與技術間的密切合作,未來不但能夠更有效地偵測肌少症、檢測失智症並提供正確的訓練工具,更有機會在醫藥發展的最前端提供協助,對醫療領域的發展有相當重大的意義。

微軟Azure大數據平台 加速精準老化醫學研究

11 November 2016

如同台灣微軟營運暨行銷事業群行銷經理尹丰龍所言,無論科技風潮如何演變,微軟始終在資通訊科技領域扮演關鍵角色。在近幾年,微軟的改變幅度相當大,要求每一位員工皆必須成為雲端、大數據等服務的推廣者,期盼藉由雲端平台的強大力量,促使不同作業流程邁向數位化,醫療產業尤其如此,可以借重Azure高效能平行分散式運算資源,加快癌症研究開發時程

Virginia Tech正是很好的例子,其透過微軟Azure的協助,使得一些原本需時兩天以上的繁瑣研發工作,急遽縮減到一天內完成,同時也讓研究基礎架構的佈建成本大幅下降,得以加快腳步探索治療癌症的方法,獲致巨大創新成就。

尹丰龍歸納,現今已實際發生在Azure平台的醫療大數據應用型態,相當多元化,包括了持續照護、醫療數據分析、加速醫療研究發展、醫療物品配送管理、傳染病追蹤、社群網路的行為認知、醫療詐欺偵防,以及醫療行動化等等。

至於Azure的競爭優勢,則在於遍佈全球多達36座雲端資料中心,數量高於另外兩大公有雲平台的總和,除此之外透過Azure雲端服務平台搭載加速運算平台的GPU加速器,提供給用戶超級運算等級的效能服務,可支援各種運算要求最嚴苛的資料中心與高效能運算(HPC)應用。Azure平台也通過諸如ISO 22301、ISO 27018等難度甚高的認證,證明客戶資料存放在Azure,絕對安全可靠。

值得一提的,微軟在2016 Build開發者大會上正式發表Seeing AI專案,期望藉由電腦視覺、圖像辨識、自然語言處理與機器學習等技術,幫助視障者理解週遭的人事物與情境;此應用環境奠基於微軟的智慧API,佈建成本無需人們所想像的數百萬美元,僅需新台幣數千元,便可望實作出類型態的Pilot,堪稱醫療應用的重大突破。

全力發展精準醫療解決方案的柏瑞醫公司,即巧妙運用微軟Azure大數據平台,啟動精準老化醫學的新世代。該公司執行長張漢威指出,論及老化醫療,最難處理的病症有兩大類,一是肌少症,另一則是失智症。

所謂肌少症,意指漸進性的肌肉減少、及肌肉功能(肌力與生理活動)降低,可能導致疾病發生率的提高、生活品質的降低,甚至引起致死併發症,台灣罹患肌少症的老人約有50萬名之多;造成老年人瘦肉組織(LBM)減少,起源於年齡增加蛋白質合成量減少、活動量少蛋白質分解量增加,以蛋白質攝取量減少等三大主因,而LBM的下降,將造成免疫力減低,並提高併發症發生率。

張漢威強調,意欲減緩LBM降低,舉凡蛋白質攝取方式、攝取量及運動,都是關鍵所在;為此柏瑞醫研發QCheck解決方案,意在提供準確的生物電阻抗測量肌肉質量的參數,以期提早診斷與監測肌少症,透過QCheck結合微軟3D影像雲,足以協助醫療院所享有高科技One-Stop醫療儀器,經由3D瞄,實現一分鐘精準檢測肌少症妙效。

至於失智症,死亡率之高,名列所有疾病第六位,顯見問題嚴重,但不幸的是,迄今尚無有效的用藥可治癒失智症,主要癥結在於腦部功能太過複雜。

柏瑞醫公司於是亟思建立一種簡單的方法,幫助醫師快速檢測腦部與血液活動量,遂開發出SenseCare功能性紅外光譜神經影像儀,再結合微軟Azure,繼而發展腦活動測定機制,以及定名為CareStore的醫療大數據分析工具,希冀透過單一介面同時展現視覺化研究設計、實證醫學資料庫搜尋與大數據分析模型等完整機能,對於失智症的醫療臨床應用產生關鍵助力。

Anatomy of Sarcopenia

Sarcopenia is the degenerative loss of skeletal muscle mass (0.5–1% loss per year after the age of 50), quality, and strength associated with aging.

Sarcopenia is a component of the frailty syndrome. It is often a component of cachexia. It can also exist independently of cachexia; whereas cachexia includes malaise and is secondary to an underlying pathosis such as cancer

Sarcopenia may occur in healthy people and does not necessarily include malaise.
