DiPAR project

The DiPAR project will deliver an innovative medical device for the early diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. The device comprises a custom-developed tablet computer and sensor pen, and accompanying software.
The technology will assist in diagnosing Parkinson's earlier than is currently possible, and in differentiating between neuro-motor impairments.

 

The DiPar project is a pan-European collaboration between the following partners. More information can be found by following the links.
