i-PROGNOSIS project builds early detection test of Parkinsons’ Disease

Parkinson's Disease (PD) 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 and 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 early detection test and design innovative interventions using the potential of new technologies such as smart phone and smart watch.
