A Wearable Electrostimulator for
Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder, with general symptoms such as tremors, rigidity, bradykinesia, and postural instability. Symptoms worsen as the disease progresses and the patient’s quality of life is vastly impaired.
This medical breakthrough is an electro-stimulator which can be attached to the patient’s ear; it is a brand new device developed to reduce patients’ symptoms to a level achieved with medication. Patients currently experience many undesirable side effects due to the medications they use; this device, however, has no side effects whatsoever. It will also be an alternative for the very expensive and risky deep brain stimulation (DBS) procedure. This breakthrough is the result of a pioneering study in its field - its development still in progress.
A large number of clinical trials have been conducted with the device and are continuing. You can access detailed information via the Clinical Research page.
