The current pandemic has accelerated the need for digital tools to assess people with Parkinson remotely. In a recent article in JAMA Neurology, Bastiaan R. Bloem, MD, PhD, Ray Dorsey, MD and Michael S. Okun, MD, highlight the difficulty to keep track of fluctuating and rare events such as falls or seizures of PD patients, as observations in clinic do not always match a patient’s actual abilities.

But how can Kinetikos support these needs, you ask? The answer is PDtraKer.

PDtraKer

A mobile app that allows you to follow your patient’s daily activities and enhance their quality of life.

Kinetikos has developed a medical-grade tool for Parkinson’s Disease treatment that continuously collects patients´movement data through smartphone sensors during daily living activities. We instantly translate it into clinical insight for an objective, accurate and remote support in diagnosis and treatment plans.

Easy and instant data collection

PDtraKer uses the sensors from patients’ smartphone to collect data, which allows patients to be monitored continuously with no action from their side.

Proprietary machine learning algorithms characterise patients’ movement and postural signatures, capturing daily variations of symptoms.

Direct Interaction with your patients

PDtraKer enables you to communicate directly with your patients outside the clinic through alerts, reminders, treatment updates, text messaging.

You can also select the information that is collected, such as asking for a given question to be answered at a given day/time or asking for a test to be performed.

Movement Tracking

Data collected is automatically pushed into CliniK platform. Functional mobility of patients is analysed in minutes, allowing you to have instant access to your patients response and quickly react accordingly, updating medication prescription or simply to communicate with them.
