This sounds like an innovative approach ... but I thought there were prohibitions against automated delivery of medications from such systems. Don't even insulin pumps for diabetes still require human confirmation of the blood sugar reading to prevent system malfunctions from automatically triggering greater problems?

Wish these guys the very best of luck. Technology is certainly ready to deliver and what we need most is closer collaboration between engineers, neuro-scientists and clinicians. PS. I wonder if Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) can be controlled using a similar sensor mechanism? That would take the application beyond Parkinson's Disease e.g. to distonia, dementia etc.

It seems to be for the brain , like a pacemaker to the heart. This attempt seems that it will give the doctors and bionics people a lot of new information.When they are compiled a clear path may be seen to treat Parkinson's.

Note that the system will be tested on a hundred patients in their homes rather than in the laboratory. Volunteers are currently being recruited in Spain, Italy, Ireland and Israel.
