Our guest is Professor Stephen Smith, co-founder and director of ClearSky Medical Diagnostics and Professor of Electronic Engineering in the Department of Electronics at University of York. 1 in 4 people get a misdiagnosis in Parkinson’s disease which can lead to an overtreatment. Professor Smith highlights the importance of an accurate diagnosis in neurodegenerative diseases. ClearSky MD provides the PD-Monitor assisting specialists by measuring and identifying symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Finding a tolerable balance between unpleasant side effects of the medication and its benefits is another focus.
