Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that progressively affects the dopamine neurons linked to movement.

When the first motor symptoms appear, 60% to 80% of the dopamine-producing cells are destroyed.
In 25 years, the number of patients has doubled, partly due to the aging of the population and the increase in the number of elderly people.

Patients are diagnosed on average from 55 years old.

Worldwide, 6 million people are affected and according to some studies, within 10 years, this figure will be 9 million.
In France, Parkinson’s disease affects more than 200,000 people.

The disease affects an average of 55% of men and 45% of women, i.e. 1.5 men for one woman.
The main symptoms are tremors, slowness of movement, muscular stiffness, moments of fatigue as well as the symptom of freezing, the need that we wish to meet with our innovation.

It is important to know that the motor symptoms of Parkinson’s are asymmetrical. It means that they appear first on one side and then on both sides, with always one side more affected than the other one.
