A Major Digital Innovation Improves Parkinson’s Detection

A Major Digital Innovation Improves Parkinson’s Detection

App, Parkinson’s Disease
We met iPrognosis in early 2018, and previously posted about their efforts - Big Data Advancing Parkinson’s Research They recently sent us an update. The significant technological advances of recent years in artificial intelligence are beginning to bear fruit in the medical field. Several leading European universities of technology and hospitals have joined forces to carry out a digital revolution in the early detection of Parkinson's disease. Join our newsletter for the latest EU Digital Health Updates The iPrognosis mobile application (free on Google Play Store) allows a detailed and long-term follow-up of the user's characteristics. The algorithm developed and trained as part of the research project will be able to detect early signs of the disease and alert health professionals in order to diagnose the disease well in advance of what we are able to…

Big data advancing the way Parkinson’s disease is detected www.i-prognosis.eu  This year again, the i-PROGNOSIS project takes part in the Parkinson’s Awareness Month to raise awareness of the possibilities brought by new technologies to earlier detect the disease. Released last year in Germany, Greece, Portugal, and the UK, the iPrognosis mobile application (available for free on the Google Play Store) allows for large-scale data collection (Gdata study) fostering the development of machine learning algorithms able to detect behavioral changes relating to Parkinson’s disease (PD). A year later, the i-PROGNOSIS partners are starting the medical evaluation of the first version of these algorithms to hopefully provide preliminary evidence of the i-PROGNOSIS proof of concept. The i-PROGNOSIS research and innovation project is building on the legacy of breakthrough research in artificial intelligence by leveraging the…
