  "description": "<p>Introduction. The use of apps and/or games in healthcare interventions have gained popularity, however, there is still a gap in the understanding on how these types of interventions are used for a sustainable management of Parkinson disease (PD).</p>\n\n<p><br>\nMaterials and Methods. Targeting intelligent early detection and intervention in PD area, the Personalized Game Suite (PGS) approach is presented here (mainly based on different goal-oriented activities through a virtual environment), as part of the H2020 i-Prognosis project (www.i-prognosis.eu), that introduces the integration of different serious games in a unified platform, namely: 1) ExerGames, 2) DietaryGames, 3) EmoGames, and 4) Hand writing/Voice (H/V) Games). The PGS tackles the PD symptoms as it incorporates the practicing of walk movement, improvement of gait mechanisms, balance and coordination aspects, encouragement and/or re-education of healthy and balanced diet, retraining of eating behaviour, improvement of facial expressiveness, improvement/maintaining of writing skills, practicing of narration/vowels/letters and speech dynamics.</p>\n\n<p>Results. Via the PGS, the management of the PD patient&rsquo;s condition is placed within a serious games context, in order to improve, sustain or slowing down its progressive deterioration, taking into account safety, feasibility, personalization, socialization, and behavioural change aspects.</p>\n\n<p>Discussion and Conclusion. The PGS: i) provides opportunities for the progressive use of self-assessment tools/games into more specific and integrated monitoring tools; ii) uses the app/games to set up simple routine to better manage patient&rsquo;s healthy life; iii) helps family/friends/caregivers to understand the evolution of PD through games and activities; and iv) plans different kind of game-scenarios according to the needs of the patients. The realization of PGS sets the basis for establishing a holistic framework that could aim at improving not only motor and non-motor symptoms, but also behavioural and cognitive impairments in PD, informing health care providers and policy makers for its inclusion in routine management for PD.</p>",
