In Europe Parkinson’s disease affects over a million people. This number will double by 2030. The “PD_manager” aims at providing personalized and optimal PD management through the interaction of a multidisciplinary and specialised team with the use of easy and accessible technologies: A smart watch, an insole to measure gait and balance, a smart pillbox and a set of applications for smartphone and/or tablet.
Those devices along with an online data collection system will provide each patient the specific therapeutic changes necessary to ensure the best treatment and to develop rehabilitation focused home-care system.
