Various remote monitoring devices are available commercially, with the Kinesia family being widely accessible worldwide. Physicians can bill for time spent on remote monitoring using a designated CPT code, ensuring they don't lose money. Patients can visit the Michael J. Fox Foundation and Parkinson's Foundation websites for updated information on available devices, including ongoing trials and commercially available options. The trial finder on the Michael J. Fox Foundation website helps locate relevant studies. Additionally, a simple Google search can provide information. Consulting a Parkinson's physician about using wearable devices, particularly the Great Lakes Neurotechnology option, is recommended, as it is widely available throughout the United States.
