The PKG®

Clinical Application

The PKG® system consists of a wrist-worn movement recording device known as the PKG Watch.

  • Data is collected continuously by the PKG Watch during activities of daily living in the home environment
  • Can be programmed to remind the patient, at their prescribed Parkinson’s disease medication times
  • The patient wears the PKG Watch for 7 days
  • At the end of the recording period, the data is uploaded for processing.
  • The PKG® is generated and emailed to the patient’s clinician, graphically and numerically depicting the movement of the patient.
  • The PKG® shows scores representative of dyskinesia and bradykinesia, compared to controls, throughout the day and from day to day.
  • Other information such as medication compliance, motor fluctuations, immobility, tremor and periods where the PKG Watch was not worn are also shown.
