Summary

Designed to help medical professionals recognise the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD), and then diagnose and treat the condition. Although the app is not aimed at patients, the funder of the app, the Parkinson’s Association of Ireland, an Ireland-based patient group specialising in Parkinson's disease, is asking patients with Parkinson's to inform their GP of the existence of the app. The Association hopes that such action by patients will increase uptake of the app by medical professionals, resulting in healthcare staff being more knowledgeable about PD. The Association has produced a leaflet about the app for patients to take to their doctors [see http://bit.ly/T0TJjf].

Reviews

Reviewer: Parkinson’s Association of Ireland
Review: “We have produced an app designed specifically to help doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals. The app will inform them, and assist them with the diagnosis, treatment and control of Parkinson’s symptoms. Parkinson’s disease is quite difficult to diagnose, and this app is a great help. Helps manage Parkinson’s disease for patients.”
