Neurofeedback for Parkinson's is one of the most exciting new developments in helping this disease. This simple, safe, and effective technique helps target the known circuit problems in the brain that cause symptoms like rigidity, tremors, and slow movement. It also boosts the quality of life for people with Parkinson’s without using more medications.
The SMARTPD Program uses advanced machine learning and digital technology to reduce Parkinson's symptoms by measuring the brain's electrical activity and providing real-time feedback to the patient, helping them control their symptoms better.
Using deep learning algorithms increases the accuracy of brain activity measurement and feedback provided to patients. These advanced machine-learning models can analyze brain data and identify patterns specific to Parkinson's disease. This allows for a more personalized Neurofeedback treatment, which can improve the effectiveness of the treatment.
How does Neurofeedback work?
Neurofeedback can be thought of as a form of "brain exercise." Just as physical exercise helps to improve and keep overall fitness, Neurofeedback can help to improve and support brain function. By providing real-time information about brain activity, Neurofeedback allows individuals to learn how to control and regulate their brain activity, much like how you would learn to control and regulate their breathing or heart rate during physical exercise. The brain can learn to function more efficiently through repeated training, improving various areas such as attention, mood, and cognitive flexibility.
In people with Parkinson's disease, the brain produces abnormal patterns of electrical activity, which a QEEG (quantitative EEG) can detect. The QEEG can provide information about the brain's activity that may not be apparent from other tests, such as imaging scans or physical exams. Neurofeedback can target abnormal brain activity and restore function, mainly in mobility, sleep, mood, and tremors.
Using sensors attached to various areas of the scalp, a computer reconstructs your EEG patterns in real-time. Our technology works at multiple levels, providing feedback about how well your brain is performing and letting you learn from that to improve.
While Parkinson's disease is a chronic disorder, it does not have to be overwhelming. Our unique combination of unique training methods and technology can help you manage the symptoms of Parkinson's and live your life to the fullest.
