Over the past few years, there has been a rise in the number of elderly people in Riverside County. Shortage of geriatrics specialists and lack of effective treatments were the major reasons behind the growth of the population affected by Parkinson’s disease in Riverside County. As Parkinson’s disease is commonly seen in elderly people, Riverside County was considered by Dr. Zaldy Tan to conduct research on the differing needs of people. Tan’s team of medical experts plan to regularly visit hospitals and medical centers in Riverside to understand the county’s resources and priorities. 

Technical advancements and improvements in the treatments and medicines for Parkinson’s disease have aided the development of the global deep brain stimulation devices market. The burden of Parkinson’s disease is increasing on local and global manufacturers in the U.S., the EU, and other developed countries. Recently, Tel Aviv University worked on the development of advanced biometric chip implant, called as Rehabilitation Nano Chip. With the help of this chip, it will be possible for doctors and neurosurgeons to restore normal functions of the brain.
