Real-time pain assessment through facial recognition technology for patients that cannot verbally communicate.


Imagine you are in excruciating pain, but you can't tell anyone. This is the reality for millions of non-communicative people world-wide, such as those with moderate to severe dementia. ePAT's point of care apps utilise facial recognition technology to detect facial micro-expressions which are indicative of pain, to provide these people with a voice.
