    Ep 5 | Charco: CUE1 for Parkinson's

    In this episode, Nick speaks with Lucy Jung, Co-Founder of Charco Neurotech. Charco has created an incredible device that reduces the symptoms of Parkinson’s for patients and helps them live as close to normal lives as possible. Lucy’s passion for bettering the lives of those with Parkison’s is truly infectious, and hopefully, you will all be inspired by this episode.

    Lucy Jung co-founded Charco Neurotech after meeting members of the Parkinson's community whose symptoms prevented them from smiling. From then it has been Charco's goal to bring back smiles for people with long-term conditions. With a background in product design, Lucy conceived the CUE1 while studying the Innovation Design Engineering Master's at Imperial College and the Royal College of Art. With the support of some incredible institutions, advisors, and people with Parkinson's, this went on to become Charco Neurotech.
