Charité – Printed by Parkinsons

25 July 2019 | Services

Living with Parkinson’s can be tough. Often, even the simplest of tasks become challenging. To make us all feel which effect the disease has the Berliner university hospital Charité asked six patients to name an object that became difficult to use. Then they recorded their kinetic and neurological data with EEG systems and accelerometers – and used it to affect a 3D printer. Their object was printed in bronze according to their tremor – visualising the impact Parkinson’s is having on their lives. Each piece is for sale at an art exhibition in Berlin and the proceeds go towards funding research projects.
