About Us

Global Kinetics was established in 2007 to commercialise innovative technology developed by Professor Malcolm Horne, from the Florey Institute of Neuroscience & Mental Health (the largest Neuroscience research team in Australia and the Southern Hemisphere), and Dr Rob Griffiths, for the precise recording, quantification and reporting of movement symptoms of neurological disease.

The lead product, the Personal’s KinetiGraph® system (PKG®) movement recording is a unique and useful tool for neurologists in the management of Parkinson’s disease.

Company Overview

The PKG System

History of the PKG system

Initial development of the technology behind the PKG® system began in the late 1990s by Professor Malcolm Horne and Dr Rob Griffiths at the world-renowned Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health in Melbourne, Australia. The pair worked on developing the data logger, assessment and report creation technology and in 2007, Global Kinetics Corporation (GKC) was established to commercialise this innovative technology.

The PKG® system has evolved to include advanced monitoring technology and reporting capabilities and in 2016 the next generation data logger featuring an interactive touch-screen design – the PKG Watch was launched.
