Monitoring of Neurological Movement Disorders
Our team is developing computer vision technology and artificial intelligence techniques to monitor and assess movement in people with dementia and Parkinson’s disease. This system will then be used to monitor and automatically capture data which can be processed to guide clinical decision making.
For people with dementia, and with additional funding from the Alzheimer’s Association and Brain Canada, we are developing an ambient system to monitor how a person walks and to estimate the person’s risk of falling. For individuals with Parkinson’s disease, we are developing algorithms capable of analyzing video data of clinical assessments to automatically estimate clinical scores related to parkinsonism and dyskinesia.
