Using AI/IoT and robotics for ultra-early diagnosis and rehabilitation in Parkinson's disease
Parkinson's disease is a disease where motor function is impaired due to the degeneration of nerve cells. At Tokyo Tech, researchers in materials science, ultra-sensitivity sensing, measurement, diagnosis, and rehabilitation are collaborating to develop ways of detecting Parkinson's disease and support rehabilitation. Two innovations showing particular promise are a measurement device for predicting disease severity based on how the patient walks, and a wearable robot that supports walking.
