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.

    DSS-Retreat 2019

    As in the last year we spent a couple of days (15.10.2019 till 18.10.2019) on the island Sylt to reflect our past, current, and future research work. Due to a "cold wave" we were a bit reduced this year, but anyhow, we had a very good (and producive) time on this beautiful island. Beside our research plans (reflecting the last year and planning of the next years), we also discussed teaching ...
