DBS for Parkinsons

Abbott, Medtronic Driving Deep Brain Stimulation Innovation for Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects movement. Symptoms start gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. Tremors are common, but the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement.

Which Data are Worth Collecting Through Wearable Sensors for Parkinson’s Disease Symptoms

Although wearable devices can automatically detect Parkinson’s disease symptoms and inform clinicians about the progression of disease, the machine learning algorithms must be trained with annotated data from clinical experts who can recognize symptoms, and at the same time collecting such data are costly. Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, IL conducted a study to investigate […]
