Handbook of Digital Technologies in Movement Disorders aims to unite these factors to provide a comprehensive guide to patient focused treatments for movement disorders. Sections cover an introduction to digital technologies, concepts, and terminologies, review various perspectives on technology in movement disorders, including patient and medical professionals, and present technologies used in detecting, measuring progression, and determining response to treatments. Additional chapters review the technology used in various treatments of movement disorders, including assistive and robotic technologies. Finally, the last section examines the challenges with technology, including privacy and other ethical issues. Over the past few years, there have been fundamental changes in the diagnosing and treating patients with chronic diseases, significantly affecting management of neurological movement disorders. In addition, the health and fitness sector developed several devices to better classify, track, and potentially treat chronic diseases. Both handling and interpreting these large datasets has been revolutionized, by machine and deep learning approaches, leading to new and more effective therapies, resulting in longer survival rates.

Insulin: Deficiency, Excess and Resistance in Human Disease provides an overview of the role of insulin in the pathogenesis of prevalent non-communicable diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer, along with a comprehensive review of insulin replacement therapies and novel cardioprotective and insulin-sensitizing drugs. Notable advances in precision diagnosis and therapy for single gene subtypes of diabetes in recent years are also discussed.The discovery of insulin and its lifesaving introduction into clinical practice is one of the most celebrated accomplishments of medical science. However, despite decades of progress and major technical advances, the goal of providing insulin replacement therapy that truly mimics normal physiology remains elusive.
