Last 3 July 2017, an audience of tech, startup and media people alongside representatives of national seniors’ organisations, joined the information event hosted by the Greek Microsoft Innovation Centre in Athens to introduce the iPrognosis smart mobile application and explain how it will be used to collect data.
The event aimed at raising awareness among the Greek public to volunteer early detection of Parkinson’s disease using a mobile application developed within the i-PROGNOSIS project, as well as to attract people willing to assist in the dissemination and research objectives of the project Work. Expected results of the project are to empower patients, reduce the need for hospitalization and improve their quality of life as the disease develops.
The smart mobile app is the tool for the Gdata Study, a data collection study whose objective is to investigate whether the data collected can help identify patterns that are associated with already known motor and non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s or by implication, to optimize Parkinson’s early detection.

The iPrognosis app, developed by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the Microsoft Innovation Center, COSMOTE, the National Center for Research and Technological Development (Greece), the Fraunhofer Research Center (Germany) and the Karolinska Institute (Sweden) is available for free to anyone living in Germany, Greece, Portugal (and soon the UK) from the Google Play Store.

A video explaining how to install the app is to be created soon.
