The PKG® system consists of a wrist-worn movement recording device, proprietary algorithms and a data-driven report known as the PKG.
Data is collected continuously by the PKG Watch during activities of daily living in the home environment and can be programmed to remind the patient, at their prescribed Parkinson’s disease medication times, to register that they’ve taken their Parkinson’s disease medication.
The PKG Watch is worn by the patient continuously at home while patient goes about day-to-day activities. The PKG Watch is charged weekly via a docking station.
At the end of the recording period, the data is uploaded via a cellular connection for processing. The PKG® is generated, graphically and numerically depicting the movement of the patient. The PKG® shows scores representative of dyskinesia and bradykinesia, compared to controls, throughout the day and from day to day. Other information such as medication compliance, motor fluctuations, immobility, tremor and periods where the PKG Watch was not worn are also shown.
