WEARABLE SENSORS FOR PARKINSON'S DISEASE
The Michael J. Fox Foundation and Intel Corporation are partnering to
gather and analyse data from Wrist-worn devices worn by people with
Parkinson's Disease that track users' movement. The results could help
individuals and their doctors better manage their Parkinson's Disease.
Intel engineers are comparing the data obtained from the device to
clinical observations and patient diaries in order to test the devices'
accuracy. They are developing mathematical formulas to measure the symptoms
and the progression of Parkinson's Disease. These devices can capture up to
300 observations per second. So formulas to interpret all that data and
report what it means related to someone's Parkinson's Disease can help
individuals and their physicians monitor disease.
