Parkinson’s disease is one of the fastest growing mental illnesses in the world. Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US have found a way to track it in patients living at home. He has created such an in-home device, with the help of which people living away from hospitals can be monitored for increasing symptoms of the disease.

First know, what is Parkinson’s disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a mental disease. In this, a person has trouble walking, it is difficult to balance the body with tremors, stiffness in the body. Tongue trembles when the patient speaks, hands tremble when writing. Gradually the ability of the body to work decreases. Till now the exact treatment has not been found. An attempt is made to reduce the symptoms through medicines. It is believed that more than 40% of patients with Parkinson’s are not treated by a neurologist or a Parkinson’s specialist.

Till now the exact cure for Parkinson's has not been found.

How will the new device work?
This research from MIT has been published in the Science Translational Journal. This device, the size of a WiFi router, collects patient data through radio signals. It can be placed in a corner of the house and the patient does not need to wear it. The device tracks the patient’s movement and speed of movement, so that the severity of the disease can be estimated. It also tracks the progression of Parkinson’s disease symptoms and patient response to medications.

Dina Katabi, who was involved in the study, says – With the help of the device, the patient can tell his problems to the doctor while staying at home. With this, the patient will not have to go to the hospital and doctors will be able to treat them from the clinic itself.

One year research
50 people were included in this research. Of these, 34 people were patients with Parkinson’s disease and their data was being collected through machine learning algorithms. At-home study was done on these for one year. Researcher Guo Zhang said that the device monitored all the patients well and gave accurate measurements of their movement speed.
