Abstract

Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a well-known progressive and neurodegenerative disorder, resulting in motor and non-motor symptoms that significantly reduce the quality of life. Motivated by the increased adoption of serious games in health care interventions sector in the last years, an unobtrusive approach is explored here, realised via the i-PROGNOSIS interventions platform (www.i-prognosis.eu), consisting of a game-based suite. In this way, targeting intelligent early detection and intervention in PD area, the Personalised Game Suite (PGS) design approach is presented, integrating different serious games in a unified platform. Overall, this comprehensive review gives an overview of studies examining motor and non-motor symptoms for PD along with the PGS design approach, in order to inform researchers and game designers for its consideration in the self-management of PD.
