PD Neurotechnology is a medical device company founded in 2015 and certified with ISO 9001:2015, ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 13485:2016. PDMonitor is the company’s first product.

PDMonitor is a Class IIa medical device according to Directive 93/42/EEC. It comprises an ecosystem for monitoring PD Patient symptoms. It consists of 5 lightweight monitoring devices (MDs) that patients wear on different body parts. The PDMonitor SmartBox and Cloud incorporate state of the art machine learning algorithms to detect the main PD motor symptoms and their intensity. Based on those symptoms and complementary information from the PDMonitor Patient Mobile app on lifestyle and drug adherence, the treating physician can use the PDMonitor Physician Tool, available as web and smartphone app to have a comprehensive view of PD related symptoms and modify therapy accordingly. The caregiver’s pivotal role is also seamlessly accounted for in the overall design of the system.
