Clinical application of the PKG® system
The PKG® provides objective, ambulatory, continuous assessment of motor complications associated with movement disorders including:
- Assessment of bradykinesia, dyskinesia and tremor
- Ability to correlate symptom fluctuations and their severity with respect to levodopa dosage
- Self-reported levodopa compliance
- A record of daytime sleepiness and immobility
- Assessment of the risk of Impulse Control Disorders
Dyskinesia & Bradykinesia
Target ranges used in the PKG report are based on consensus targets published in: Rajesh Pahwa R, Stuart H. Isaacson, Diego Torres-Russotto, Fatta B. Nahab, Peter M. Lynch & Katya E. Kotschet (2018) Role of the Personal Kineti-Graph in the routine clinical assessment of Parkinson’s disease: recommenda-tions from an expert panel, Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics, 18:8, 669-680, DOI: 10.1080/14737175.2018.1503948
Daytime Sleep & Immobility
How It Works
The PKG Portal is a password protected cloud database for use in your clinic. The PKG can be accessed as needed.
Your patient wears a PKG Watch for a week then use the pre-paid envelope and drop into any mailbox. Movement Disorder Specialists oversee analysis and annotation of PKG data.
The PKG results are generated into a fully annotated report which is sent to a protected portal site to be accessed when needed.
