Description

About the lecture

Professor Malcom Horne has recently commenced a national study looking at a ‘treat to target’ approach to managing Parkinson’s disease using a wrist worn device (the Parkinson's Kinetigraph) that records symptoms and movements and also provides patients with medication reminders.

The aim is to establish whether objective measurement aids in improved clinical care and leads to improved control of Parkinson’s disease and quality of life.

During this lecture, Mal will discuss the history of the Kinetigraph, and outline the clinical trial of using it to better manage patient's medication to control their symptoms.

About Professor Horne:

Professor Malcolm Horne is a consultant neurologist at St Vincent’s Hospital in Fitzroy.

Professor Horne’s clinical interests are in movement disorders, especially in Parkinson’s disease. His research interests relate to factors underlying the control of movement and in particular the biological basis underlying Parkinson’s disease.

Specifically, he has been studying how the nervous system repairs injured nerve cells and how these nerve cells are guided to their targets.
