Traditionally, people with movement disorders, like Parkinson’s disease or essential tremor, have trouble accessing the care they need, either because of lack of specialists in their area or symptoms that make travel difficult. They often travel long distances to access specialists offering therapies like neuromodulation — which controls symptoms by modulating electrical signals in specific parts of the brain.
Ultimately, they may delay or settle for less-effective care, which can mean the difference between engaging in life and sitting on the sidelines.
Abbott’s NeuroSphere™ Virtual Clinic — launched earlier this year — transforms neuromodulation care by allowing remote visits and changes to therapy. For people who don’t live close to a provider or have difficulty accessing care because of circumstances like caregiver flexibility or the global pandemic, Virtual Clinic has the potential to increase access to optimal care and therapy management.
These tools can help break down barriers to care. More than that, they are setting a new standard for digital health to further improve outcomes and quality of life.
