NeuroKinect is the study of movement related neurologic diseases. In order to evaluate the movement acuities, a revolutionary, non-wearable, low-cost 3D vision system based on RGB-D sensor (Kinect camera).

NeuroKinect is being used to quantify 3D movements and biosignals in:


Parkinson’s Disease

FAP (Paramiloidosis).

Many challenges are being approached in this line of reseach.
