Scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) and Siberian State Medical University (SSMU) develop a diagnosis system for neurodegenerative diseases at early stages. They are such diseases as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and others. The diagnosis system is based on virtual reality technology – a person is immersed in a virtual environment to carry out some functional tests. Researchers change the parameters of the virtual environment and record changes in the person’s movements. The scientists are going to complete the technical part of the project in 2017.
