Digital diagnostics - a new way to manage the side effects of Parkinson’s treatment

Our researchers worked both with people living with Parkinson’s and the NHS to create a device which could transform quality of life for those living with the condition.

Professor Stephen Smith, of our Department of Electronic Engineering, worked with his team to produce a device which can monitor the side effects of Parkinson’s medication with digital accuracy.

The device is known as the Levodopa Induced Dyskinesia Monitor (LID Monitor) and in this film, along with consultant neurologist Stuart Jamieson and John Sheepy, who lives with the condition, Stephen talks about how the monitor was developed, and how he hopes it will be used in the future.
