i-PROGNOSIS is a multiscope project that its main objectives revolve around the development of new detection methods and interventions for Parkinson’s, but, also, expand to the societal level.

 

Our key objectives

Build early detection tests

for Parkinson’s disease based on users’ interaction with everyday technology.

Design interventions

to sustain the quality of patients‘ life over the course of Parkinson’s disease.

Empower people

to affect policies & reduce hospitalisation.

 

Detailed objectives

O1

Development of the i-PROGNOSIS ecosystem that will identify the risk of healthy older adults (50+) developing Parkinson’s Disease

O2

Large-scale, unobtrusive, behavioural data collection based on: i) older adults’ natural and every day interaction with smart devices and ii) fully guided and controlled testing scenarios

O3

Dynamic monitoring of older adults’s behavioural change based on the above data

O4

Anonymised and secured Cloud-based storage of the captured behavioural data and efficient analysis through modern techniques (i.e. big data analytics and machine-learning) for the development of Information Technology (IT)-based novel early Parkinson’s Disease diagnostic tests

O5

Design and implementation of IT-based supportive interventions towards countering the most frequent Parkinson’s related risks, i.e. frailty, falls and depression

O6

Creation of an information-driven i-PROGNOSIS platform where professionals (Parkinson’s Disease experts) will collaborate with older adults towards optimisation of older adults’ quality of life

O7

Realisation of the i-PROGNOSIS platform with an open, service-oriented and scalable architecture in order to facilitate the integration of new functionalities and services

O8

Promotion of early Parkinson’s Disease detection and related risks awareness via large-scale dissemination activities and social intervention movements

O9

Modelling of the elderlies’ adherence to lifestyle change programs (supportive interventions) and the resultant health outcomes

O10

Realisation of extensive socio-economic analysis in order to inform all the relevant stakeholders of the estimated merits of i-PROGNOSIS initiative
