Summary

The app is effectively a study sponsored by Sage Bionetworks, a non-profit research organization, with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. A number of academic institutions and patient organisations have supported its development. The app will monitor your health and symptoms of PD progression like dexterity, balance and gait using questionnaires and sensors via the Parkinson mPower mobile phone application and wearable devices if available. By participating in this study you can help the researchers learn the range of PD symptoms and find out whether mobile devices can help measure PD progression and manage these symptoms better.

Reviews

Reviewer: The Michael J Fox Foundation, USA
Review: “mPower (Mobile Parkinson Observatory for Worldwide, Evidence-based Research) uses the new ResearchKit software framework announced today by Apple to make it easy for people with Parkinson’s disease to contribute data to researchers investigating symptom variation. ResearchKit turns iPhone into a powerful tool for medical research by enabling participants to complete tasks or submit surveys right from the mPower app. This new software framework delivers a simple way to present study participants with an interactive informed consent process, which helps explain the study's purpose, how data will be used and the app's privacy policy.”
