NeuroPath



Improving the quality of life of Parkinson's disease patients



THE NEED: 1 vs 8,765


"I see my neurologist every six months for a thirty-minute session and thus spend every year a total of one hour being observed with the UPDRS. That leaves 8,765 hours per year when my disease is not being monitored."

Swedish patient and advocate Sara Riggare, from the book ‘Brainstorms, the race to unlock the mysteries of Parkinson’s disease’, by John Palfreman, Scientific American, 2015

Our Projects



Project KU Leuven, Research Group for Neuromotor Rehabilitation & Research Group for Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation, Faculty of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Sciences:

The main objectives of this research protocol are:

  • Validation of automated 3D marker-less motion capturing for home-based evaluation of motor disorders and rehabilitative exercises in Parkinson’s disease patients
  • Mono-centric study: screening tests to evaluate motor and cognitive function in Parkinson's disease.
  • Motion registration of execution of motor evaluation of Parkinson's disease severity (motor disorders) and rehabilitation exercises recommended for Parkinson's patients.

Principal investigator: Prof. Sabine Verschueren


Project Heilig Hart Ziekenhuis Lier & Mobilab:

The main objectives of this research protocol are:

  • The development of a standardized protocol for an objective, unbiased, assessment of PD motor symptoms severity by different Board-certified neurologists
  • The technological assessment of the quality of each of the 3D marker-less motion capturing devices and the analyses of differences in producing the kinematic parameters
  • The assessment of variability of pre- and post-medication for a sample of Parkinson’s disease patients, independent of PD stage
  • The variability of motor score post-medication at different moments of the day
  • The possible effect of exercises on the motor score post-medication
  • Patient feedback on the patient-friendliness of the NeuroPath solution (e.g. intrusiveness)

Principal investigator: Dr. Peter Dedeken


Project CHU Liège:

The main objectives of this research protocol are:

  • the development of a standardized protocol for a) an objective, unbiased assessment of the severity of motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease at home; b) continuous monitoring of activity and sedentary levels of patients. This protocol uses inertial measurement units integrated in a 3D marker-less motion capturing device and wearables such as the use of connected watches
  • to monitor the motor and non-motor (sleep) characteristics of Parkinson's disease in the usual living environment of patients while the patient is moving freely or during specific physical exercises associated with a 20-week home rehabilitation program designed collaboratively by a physician and a physiotherapist, using a 3D marker-less motion capturing device and a connected watch

Principal investigator: Dr. Gaëtan Garraux
