FTLD digital biomarker publication and 2023 CNS Summit

We are excited to share a recent paper from our digital biomarker study in frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) ( NCT05956834), published in Parkinsonism & Related Disorders. 

The paper, titled "Utilizing speech analysis to differentiate progressive supranuclear palsy from Parkinson's disease" showcases the potential of BioDigit SpeechTM to distinguish between Parkinson's disease and progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) - a severe and rapidly progressive FTLD syndrome that lacks effective treatment and leads to a rapid onset of dementia, disability, and death. You can freely access and download the paper.

Dr Vaziri will present the findings of this study during the Innovation Showcase at the 2023 CNS Summit this week on Friday, November 10.

Furthermore, BioSensics will be presenting three posters at the Summit related to our work in developing digital health technologies for neurological disorders:

  • Poster #2: "Continuous Monitoring of Upper Limb Function in Neurological Disorders". Read more about PAMSys ULMTM

  • Poster #9 "Multi-Modal Remote Monitoring of ALS using Wearable Sensors and Digital Assessments". Read more about BioDigit HomeTM.

  • Poster #10: "Speech Biomarkers for Monitoring Neurological Symptoms Across Different Populations". Read more about BioDigit SpeechTM
