Global Kinetics Corporation is a commercial-stage digital health company revolutionising the management of Parkinson’s disease by providing the first continuous and objective measurement of patients’ symptoms in everyday environments.
The company’s Parkinson's KinetiGraph® (PKG® or Personal KinetiGraph® as it is known in the USA) is a patient-friendly, algorithm-based system that records patients’ movements over the course of several days and creates data-driven reports that empowers more personalised treatment and management decisions—ultimately leading to a higher quality of life for patients.
The PKG® system is being used in clinics across the U.S., Europe and Asia Pacific, enabling better clinical outcomes and reducing health care costs across the Parkinson’s disease continuum.
