Last week, Dr. med. Lisa Klingelhöfer from the Clinic and Polyclinic for Neurology of the Technical University of Dresden was attending the 2019 edition of the German Congress for Parkinson’s where she pitched the i-PROGNOSIS proof of concept!
Smartphones are part of our daily life and therefore offer the opportunity to collect data about our interaction with those doing our daily activities. The iPrognosis app uses this approach to obtain behavioural pattern which might reflect early symptoms of Parkinson’s disease by the use of a smartphone.
First analyses showed that the iPrognosis approach is promising in detecting early signs of Parkinson’s disease and in differentiation between healthy people and diagnosed patients with Parkinson’s disease.
By an earlier recognition of symptoms, an earlier contact to a physician and an earlier diagnosis can be made. This will reflect in an improved health related quality of life and makes the possibility more likely to develop neuromodulatory therapies in the future.
This poster was presented by our Consortium partner Technische Universität Dresden at the 11th German Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders that took place from the 7th to the 9th of March in Düsseldorf.
