March 3, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Clinical Trials Week -- New research on Clinical Research is the subject of a report. According to news reporting originating in Clermont Ferrand, France, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Deep brain stimulation as treatment for movement related disorders is a common neurosurgical procedure. Nevertheless the targeting procedure can still be optimized as the clinical outcome resulting from intraoperative test stimulation is in general subjectively evaluated."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the University of Auvergne, "The aim of the present study was to analyse the feasibility of objective tremor evaluation based on optical flow analysis in videos and to compare the results with in parallel performed acceleration measurements. The results demonstrate the feasibility but as well limitations of the applied set-up."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Solutions to increase the quality in the future are proposed."
