    Telefónica, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and the Quirón Teknon Hospital present the first “holter” for Parkinson''s Disease

    - The holter monitor for Parkinson's disease, derived from the REMPARK system, will revolutionise diagnostics and self-management of this disease through objective, accurate and non-invasive monitoring of motor-function symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease. - A sensor gathers information on the patient's motor symptoms at all times, with an effectiveness rate of 87% in identifying the presence of motor skills and of 100% in identifying the lack thereof. - A telematics system remotely transmits the patient's state to their specialist physician, who can then assess the effect of each therapeutic action and verify whether symptoms are changing. - A smartphone can be configured to automatically emit rhythmic acoustic signals when it detects based on the data received from the sensor that the patient's walking pace is growing slower or a Freezing of Gait (temporary and involuntary inability to move) occurs. These sounds can help patients regain their pace and inhibit loss of gait. - The validation of this technology opens up new possibilities in the follow-up, diagnosis, treatment and management of this disease.
