Many Parkinson’s disease patients experience unpleasant side effects, such as involuntary movements called ‘dyskinesia’. These are a result of excess levodopa medication and called Levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID).
LID can be improved by adjusting medication dosage to find a tolerable balance between the benefits and side effects.
However, traditionally, your doctor can only rely on your description of your medication experiences, which at best is documented by your diary. It is cumbersome for the patient and the carer and unreliable for healthcare professionals.
LID-Monitor is a wearable medical device for continuous monitoring of Parkinson’s disease symptoms, designed for home use by patients and their caregivers. Results provided by LID-Monitor’s proprietary software can assist your doctor in fine-tuning your medication regime to better handle your motor symptoms and reduce unwanted drug-related complications.
