This study is looking at how sensor, audio, and video recordings can be used to identify unique characteristics that can be compared and monitored in patients with Parkinson’s disease.
- Clinically diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease
- Are responding to levodopa therapy
- Can distinguish between your “ON” and “OFF” states
- Subjects with cardiac pacemakers, electronic pumps or any other implanted medical devices, including deep brain stimulation devices.
- Allergy to adhesives or silicone
- Unstable medical condition
Volunteers will undergo 2 sessions of clinical testing. Each session is about 1.5 - 2 hours long. The 2 sessions may be completed in one visit or two visits in a two week period. You will be asked to perform a number of motor tasks while being monitored by sensors as well as audio and video recordings. The motor tasks include the UPDRS motor exam as well as activities of daily living such as tying a shoe, reading and writing.
Number of research visits: 2 sessions
Length of participation: Participation may take about 4-6 hours to complete both sessions
Assessments: UPDRS motor exam
