Objectives

Parkinson’s is a complicated, individual disorder that many patients live with for many years/decades. For this reason, a multidisciplinary disease management, involving several professions working together (neurologists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, dietitians), is important to ensure that the patient retains his/her independence and continues to enjoy the best quality of life possible.

The PD_manager project aims to:

  • model the behaviors of intended users of PD_manager (patients, caregivers, neurologists and other health-care providers)
  • educate patients, caregivers and healthcare providers with the focus on occupational and speech therapies
  • propose a set of unobtrusive, simple-in-use, co-operative, mobile devices that will be used for symptoms monitoring and collection of adherence data (smartphone, sensor insole, smart pillbox, wristband with several sensors for acceleration, heart rate, etc.).

assess motor and non-motor symptoms in Parkinson’s patients

evaluate their adherence to medical prescriptions

conduct a dedicated nutritional study and empower game-based physiotherapy at home
