Notable Research with Social Impact

Diagnostic tool for tremors

Project undertaken by: Prof. Dr. Roongroj Bhidayasiri

About research: Researchers have developed a device for analyzing abnormal movement in Parkinson’s patients and separating patients suffering from tremors that are not from Parkinson’s disease. The device helps make the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease more accurate. It also benefits the physician in assessing the patient’s symptoms during treatment. This research is very important for the medical field. This device will help diagnose Parkinson’s patients and treat them promptly, as well as a device for diagnosing, assessing and tracking the treatment of Parkinson’s patients in hospitals without specialist physicians.

Chula is the place to discover one’s true individuality and the years I spent here were most enjoyable.
