A triage device to support early diagnostics in Parkinson's disease
The project will deliver a novel aid for use in triage to support early and accurate diagnosis of Parkinsons disease (PD). The PD Pen could radically change the way patients are screened and referred to specialists by leveraging at GP level of care to create greater efficiency in utilization of specialty centers; make the process more convenient for patients and speed up access to specialists when needed. The Pen can also be used in disease monitoring – crucial along with timely diagnosis – to keep patients well and establish cost savings through optimising treatment. The accuracy of prototype clinical validation was 80%.
