Abstract

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases and its incidence is expected to growth in the next decades. Many efforts have been made in order to build a system for the remote monitoring and assessment of the motor symptoms in PD. Nevertheless, non-motor symptoms are usually not equally considered. This work is aimed at developing a mobile tool able to carry out a remote monitoring of different cognitive areas affected in the PD population and that could be integrated with the motor assessment of PD patients. This would allow not only a better monitoring of PD patients but also a better understanding of the disease progression.
