We are proud to announce our Skinner prototype being completed!
We have been working on the prototype for a couple of months now. Though this is not anything close to a consumer version yet, Skinner prototype is a truly significant step forward. It means that we’ve moved from a vague idea into its step by step implementation.
Now for the eHealth enthusiasts like ourselves: a couple of words on how the system works. Note: currently skin parameters are tuned for white skin type due to available photo samples used for the prototype. These parameters can easily be customized for other skin types:
Currently the program consists of few major parts. The first part distinguishes skin areas from other elements (hair, clothes, etc) on the photo:
The second part marks skin problem areas, which contain the most typical elements related to a certain disease:
The third part ranks this particular skin disorder type to a certain disease class:
In the consumer version of mobile app the system will provide user with the decease class (or, in lay terms, primary diagnosis) that has the highest probability rate.
Let’s have a look at the demo video to get a complete understanding of how Skinner system operates:
We intend to work hard in the coming months to bring our first eHealth solution to the public, so that you could get a primary diagnosis and recommendations on skin problems straight away from your mobile phone. We strongly believe that people have a right to take advantage of their time without annoying issues like pimples distracting them from daily activities.
