Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, US have developed an artificial intelligence system that can monitor Parkinson’s symptoms from the other side of a solid wall.
The x-ray technology – named RF-Pose – will use radio signals to sense individuals’ posture and movement. This will help medical professionals track the development of Parkinson’s and provide more effective care.
Dina Katabi, professor of electrical engineering and computer science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said: “We’ve seen that monitoring patients’ walking speed and ability to do basic activities on their own gives healthcare providers a window into their lives that they didn’t have before.
“A key advantage of our approach is that patients do not have to wear sensors or remember to charge their devices.”
