2018 - 2022 PROMPT – Personalised-care and Research On Motoric-dysfunctioning for Patient-specific Treatments

People involved from BSS


Research Project Description

In collaboration with industry and research partners we will develop an ambulatory system that can be used for the analysis, diagnostics, and treatment of brain-related movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, MS, ALS, and dystonia. Mobile technology, including functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS), EEG, and accelerometry, can provide patient-specific treatment options to help them compensate for motor dysfunctions. Initially, we aim to detect and predict falls and freezing episodes in Parkinson’s disease patients.
