i-Prognosis has recently been featured on Euronews’ Futuris, the latest news about the leading scientific and technological research projects in Europe.

In this episode of Futuris, the app and video games developed in i-Prognosis are presented and it is shown, how they help in the treatment and early diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease.

Parkinsons’ Disease is a progressive disease of the nervous system which affects around 6.3 million people worldwide, most of them aged 55 and over. Symptoms appear gradually and slowly get worse – making it difficult to diagnose. Today there is still no specific test for the condition and treatment options only help to manage PDs symptoms. This is why the i-PROGNOSIS consortium has joined forces to build an early detection test with the help of a smart phone application and design innovative serious game interventions.
