Research: Automatic Quantification of Symptoms in Parkinson’s Disease

Balance and gait deficits are frequently seen in older adults and can lead to high personal and health care burdens. This PhD project is part of the EU funded Keep Control project which is about specific diagnosis and treatment of age-related gait and balance deficits (; scientific coordinator and local supervisor: Prof. Walter Maetzler, Neurology Department of the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, Campus Kiel). 

This project will focus on implementation of a participant-controlled electronic health record, and subsequent testing for feasibility and acceptability among researchers and study participants. As part of testing the acceptability among study participants, Patients Know Best will be used for studying the collection of monthly fall reports via electronic questionnaires. Parallel to these studies we will develop a fall prediction model that in the future can be coupled to the PKB software for at-home fall risk assessment.

    Saturday Morning Physics 2018

    The DSS team was invited to participate in the last of the "Saturday Morning Physics" (SMP) events in 2018. On December 8th, a Saturday of course, Thorben Kaak, Gerhard Schmidt, and Owe Wisch gave a talk on underwater signal processing. Pupils from all around Schleswig-Holstein were quite interested, especially in the basics of SONAR systems.
