People with Parkinson’s disease (PD) suffer from motor and cognitive impairments that severely impact mobility, fall risk, and multiple key aspects of functional independence.
Until recently, treatment goals focused almost exclusively on symptom relief, but exciting recent work by CuPiD partners and others has demonstrated that motor learning and rehabilitation principles can be effective even in the presence of PD. It is critical to make these rehab-like therapies accessible to patients in their home-setting since they need continuous training, as PD is a chronic neurodegenerative disease.
In CuPiD we develop an ICT-enabled solution to the rehabilitation of patients with PD in their home setting, tailoring the solution to target mobility, cognitive function and debilitating PD symptoms such as freezing of gait.
Within CuPiD we develop a new system for a rehabilitation program that will be carried out in the at home environment and will be aimed to alleviate freezing of gait (FOG) in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD).
There are two main components to this rehabilitation program:
Both components form part of a larger tele-rehabilitation program at home, which is evaluated in an 18 month clinical evaluation.
