Time for a change in the clinical management of Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is one of the most common chronic, progressive, neurodegenerative disorders, second only to Alzheimer’s disease. A small, watch-like, 24-h monitoring device analyses detailed movement data and will soon be helping clinicians tailor more effective treatments.   Leggi l'articolo completo in italiano su CORDIS:   The global burden of PD has more than doubled over the last generation in large part due to increasing life [...]

The PD-Watch project funded by European Union

A watch that keeps track of Parkinson’s symptoms Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative condition that is progressive as symptoms appear gradually and slowly get worse. While everyone with PD has different symptoms, the most common are motor symptoms such as tremor, muscle rigidity and slowness of movement. The EU-funded PD-Watch project is developing a wearable device, configured as a wristwatch, that can monitor movement disorders. It [...]
