Parkinson's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It is a chronic condition that affects the nervous system, causing tremors, stiffness, and difficulty with movement. Early detection of disease progression and proper management can help improve the quality of life for those living with Parkinson’s. This is where our PRIMS software comes in.
PRIMS is our new patient assessment tool that currently assesses the motor and non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. It collects data in real time through cameras and surveys, and wearable sensors are not required. The data collected will then be readily available to the patients, neurologists, and other support personnel. On completion of the survey and motor assessments, PRIMS will score disease severity according to a Parkinson's rating scale in the same way that a clinician would rate disease severity in the clinic.
The importance of health monitoring in Parkinson's disease cannot be overstated. Parkinson's is a complex disease that affects each person differently. By monitoring a patient's symptoms and medication intake, healthcare professionals can adjust treatment plans to better manage symptoms and improve quality of life. This can lead to better outcomes and a higher quality of life for people with Parkinson's disease.
It's important to note that health monitoring is not just important for people with Parkinson's disease but for anyone with a chronic condition. Regular monitoring can help catch potential issues early before they become more serious. It can also help patients and healthcare providers work together to develop more effective treatment plans.
In conclusion, the PRIMS system is an innovative health monitoring system designed specifically for people with Parkinson's disease. It provides personalized treatment plans and monitors disease progression to improve outcomes and quality of life. Health monitoring is essential in Parkinson's disease, and the PRIMS system is a valuable tool for healthcare professionals and patients alike.
