A University of Rochester research team is using wearable sensors to indicate the best individualized treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
Bernadette Mroz suffers from Parkinson’s. When her medication isn’t working, it makes it hard for her to function.
“My world goes into a spin cycle. I cannot function mentally, emotionally or physically,” said Mroz in a University of Rochester news release.
While a cure may not be available anytime soon, researchers are hoping to use wearable sensors to help control Mroz’s and other Parkinson’s sufferers’ tremors and memory lapses by fine tuning their medications using data collected from sensors.
