MIT researchers track Parkinson’s patients using radar as they sleep — Fierce Biotech

When used to analyze readings from over 7,600 individuals collected from sensors in U.S. hospitals and sleep labs, the AI model correctly identified people with Parkinson's disease 80% of the time. (Getty Images)

 
Researchers at MIT have developed a sensor, about the size and shape of a WiFi router, which they say can help track Parkinson's patients' breathing while they sleep. Tracking is completely contact-free, and the device alerts caregivers to any progression of the condition—and could also be used to diagnose Parkinson's.

The device emits radio waves and captures their reflection to read small changes in its immediate environment. It works like a radar, but in this case, the device senses the rise and fall of a person’s chest.
