Clario’s Precision Motion Opal Credited with Oxford Parkinson’s Discovery

Published on: 

Findings offer promising implications for neuroscience clinical trials and future treatments, company says.

Clario, a healthcare research technology company, revealed in a company press release that researchers at Oxford University have successfully developed a new understanding of motor symptom progression in Parkinson's Disease through the use of its Precision Motion Opal technology. Reportedly, a study that leveraged the company’s wearable sensors and machine learning enabled researchers with the ability to track the motor symptom progression in individuals with Parkinson's Disease (PD) better than the conventionally used clinical rating scales. Additionally, results found that the device discovered disease progression in a significantly shorter timeframe than the traditional method.


"We are honored to support Professor Antoniades with her pivotal research and are very excited about the positive implications of these results on the Parkinsonism field," said Kristen Sowalsky, PhD, DC, VP of Medical & Scientific Affairs, Clario. "This breakthrough demonstrates the essential benefit of using wearable technology and machine learning algorithms to track Parkinson's Disease progression more accurately and assess the efficacy of early therapeutic intervention. The potential impact of these findings for neuroscience clinical trials is outstanding."
