A continuous recording session is carried out similar to a “holter”. It records the patient’s body movements through a wearable system similar to a wristwatch, which includes a triaxial accelerometer and memory support.
This recording occurs at any time and during the patient’s daily activity. However, the recorded data comprises both movements of physiological and pathological origin.
Therefore, at the end of the recording, the data stored by the wearable system are processed with the PD-Watch’s software, which was designed and developed to provide the doctor with an instrument to support distinguishing the two types of movements.
Data processing takes place automatically through a dedicated cloud platform, and a report containing the primary information on the patient’s motor state is generated. This way, the doctor can assess the severity of symptoms and motor signs and study how they vary throughout the day and from day to day.
