Abstract (technical / expert description):

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a chronic movement disorder characterized by progressive gait impairment, leading to reduced mobility, poor quality of life and frequent falls. moveIT improves healthcare for patients via wearable gait&fall sensors enabled as healthcare products by an innovative digital health pathway (DHP). The DHP defines the clinical application of these new technologies for multidisciplinary healthcare using stratified patient cohorts and care networks targeting gait&falls in PD.
