Inspiring a Digital Society (Hall X3)
Stand number: i15
Combining modern technology with medical experience, the i-PROGNOSIS research project captures the data of those who have signed up to its mobile app. The experts use the information gained to try to improve the way Parkinson’s disease (PD) is detected and managed by fostering new health practices based on technology (including smartphones, smartwatches, smart belts, and interactive games as well as sophisticated/state of the art techniques and algorithms).
i-PROGNOSIS will enable an earlier disease detection and improve patients' health-related quality of life as the disease progresses over time. It will also reduce hospitalisation. i-PROGNOSIS is an ambitious, truly innovative research project with a clear social orientation that extends the synergies between the health sector and modern technologies: it serves as proof that research and innovation are catalysts of better living standards.
