Hi reader,

 

Special issue: Big data advancing the way Parkinson’s disease is detected

---

Wednesday, 24th of October 2018

This year again, the i-PROGNOSIS project partners are rallying the #UniteForParkinsons awareness raising campaign to sensitize on the possibilities brought by new technologies to earlier detect Parkinson’s and thus better support people living with the disease. Join the movement: share our video and download our mobile app on the Google Play Store!

Your data will help refine the algorithm able to detect early signs of Parkinson’s. Your data will be anonymised and securely stored on a Cloud. The first prototype of the iPrognosis mobile application is free and currently available for Android devices in Germany, Greece, Portugal and the UK. We are still working hard to make it available in other EU countries. May you be able to help us, please contact: info@i-prognosis.eu
