Title of invention
 ENTy - polished and highly practical hardware solution for tracking posture, helping with diagnosis and possibly treatment of diseases that affect balance
Invention discription
 ENTy (the ENT stands for ear, nose, and throat — not the sentient trees) is a device and app that monitor balance and posture in real time, meant to help doctors diagnose and check up on inner ear problems like vertigo. The patient straps on a device the size of a pack of cigarettes to the small of their back, and a set of sensors sends data to an associated app. There’s a real-time readout of position, and you can see that over time as well for a test that requires a patient to stand straight for 20 seconds with their eyes closed.
