The US government’s National Institute of Health has invested almost US$2 million in new technology to improve the effectiveness of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for people with Parkinson’s disease.

The new technology developed by Great Lake NeuroTechnologies (GLNT) will combine wearable motor symptom sensing and the current DBS platform into a single, integrated system and promises to improve patient care and expand access to the treatment.

Dustin Heldman, biomedical research manager at GLNT, said: “We look forward to this next phase, which will directly integrate the systems to improve clinical workflow and speed programming time.”
