World Parkinson’s Day – 11 April 2018
On 11 April 2018, the Bionics Institute joined the global Parkinson’s community to #UniteForParkinsons because nearly 10 million people around the world live with this incurable condition. This includes more than 70,000 Australians. Currently our researchers are working on ways to improve Deep Brain Stimulation as a surgical treatment option to improve the debilitating motor symptoms experienced by affected patients.
