Apps

TabletThere are a huge number of apps that have been developed that can be useful for measuring Parkinson’s.  Some have been created by people living with Parkinson’s, some by software developers, some by doctors, and some for other purposes entirely.

Here at Parkinson’s Movement we are going through the process of reviewing them and we have a panel of advocates to assess them.  Later this year PM will be developing a rating scale for apps and devices being used in Parkinson’s so that we can guide you to the tools that we think are really valuable.

If you have an app you would like us to review, do please contact Helen.

Or to download the list we are currently working on please open the following PDF, but bear in mind it is work in progress.
