Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a common progressive neurodegenerative disorder causing debilitating, fluctuating motor symptoms such as tremors. Today, more than 100,000 people live with PD in Canada with 6,500 annual new cases. Patients with frequent fluctuations in their tremors require constant adjustments in oral medications. Objective continuous information regarding these symptoms may help physicians to perform more precise changes in these patients’ medical management. We are providing a continuous monitoring system that tracks tremors in people with Parkinson’s Disease. It uses motion sensors to detect the severity and timing of tremors so that a patient can show a summary report containing tremor data and missed medications to their specialist. This allows the specialist to give an objective analysis of the status of the patient, allowing them to give an appropriate medication regimen to improve their tremors. Contact ParkinSense :
