Czech scientists developed a device recognizing the first symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

Scientists from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication Technologies of the Brno University of Technology (VUT) have developed a special bracelet that will detect the first symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Using smart sensors, the device can monitor sleep, measure heart rate and estimate emotional state. The experts also promoted their idea within the European project niCe-life, which aims to develop digital tools for improving the quality of care for the elderly. VUT received the second highest budget and was thus able to develop the bracelet. niCe-life distributed a total of 2.1 million euros among the winning projects.
