Programming DBS for Parkinson’s
Programming deep brain stimulation (DBS) settings for Parkinson’s disease can be challenging for clinicians. Kinesia technology provides automated tools to quantify tremor, assess dyskinesia and measure bradykinesia, which can assist with programming DBS. Kinesia 360 provides a telemedicine solution that allows clinicians to screen patients before DBS surgery and follow patient symptoms at home after programming. Kinesia ProView technology provides tuning maps during in clinic programming sessions to help visualize symptom response to DBS settings. Both systems utilize broadband integrated mobile platforms with patient worn sensors, and the Kinesia web application to define clinical protocols and review reports.
