A Non-Invasive Device That Decreases Parkinson Symptoms

Assoc. Prof. Özgür Çakmak / Koç University

Our technology is a non-invasive device to decrease the symptoms of Parkinson patients, such as tremors, slow down and immobility. It shows similar effects of a device that require a difficult brain surgery used for advanced patients and going to replace it. It will also offer an additional treatment option for less advanced patients.





Market:

Large market potential. It will replace deep brain stimulation devices used in advanced Parkinson patients and may be also used for patients in less advanced stages as it offers a non-invasive solution. There are 1 million Parkinson patients in the US, and 50,000 new patients are diagnosed each year. As of 2009, over 35,000 patients went under brain surgery to implant deep brain stimulation devices.
