What is LID-Monitor?
Many Parkinson’s disease patients experience unpleasant side effects, such as involuntary movements called ‘dyskinesia’, as a result of levodopa medication. Therefore, the name of Levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID).
LID can be improved by adjusting medication dosage to find a tolerable balance between the benefits and side effects.
However,traditionally your doctor can only rely on your description of your medication experiences, which at best is documented by your diary. It is cumbersome for the patient and the carer and unreliable for the healthcare professionals.
LID-Monitor is a wearable medical device for continuous monitoring of Parkinson’s disease
symptoms, designed for home use by patients and their caregivers. Results analysed by LID-Monitor’s proprietary software can assist your doctor fine-tune disease treatment regimen to better handle your motor symptoms and reduce any unwanted drug-related complications.

How does it work?
When ordering LID-Monitor, you will receive a package of six small wireless sensors to be worn by a patient with known Parkinson’s.
These monitors measure and record data on the movement of the patient’s body over a 24-hour period.
When the monitors are returned, we will provide you and your doctor with an easy-to-read test report in the form of a 24-hour time chart using LID-Monitor’s proprietary software that distinguishes involuntary movements (known as dyskinesia) associated with Parkinson’s. Your medication and sleep information will also be documented in the report.
This analysis provides objective and reliable information for your doctor to review the effectiveness of the medicine and adjust them if necessary.
