ABSTRACT
The pilot work presented here represents a first step toward implementing advanced strategies to optimize clinical outcomes of deep brain stimulation in Parkinson’s disease using systematic data capture and analysis. The authors reliably predicted clinical outcomes by processing accelerometer data that captured motor responses to changes in deep-brain stimulation parameters. Deep-brain stimulation can help manage Parkinson’s symptoms. This department is part of a special issue on implantable electronics.
