Everyday technology has progressed so far, it is inexcusable not to use it for proactive health-care.

Hi reader,

Research has proven that early intervention could have an inverse relation with the Parkinson’s disease related risks. After two years of intense work on developing intelligent early detection tools, i-PROGNOSIS project partners are thus now moving forward with the elaboration of novel supportive services for people living with the disease.

The i-PROGNOSIS interventions will take the form of assistive interventions and games in order to tackle the various aspects of human life affected by Parkinson’s. Hence the Game Suite will target:

• Physical activity (ExerGames)

• Diet improvement (DietaryGames)

• Emotional expression (EmoGames)

• Handwriting and voice enhancement (Handwriting and VoiceGames).

With people’s empowerment underpinning the whole range of i-PROGNOSIS services under development, we’re always eager to hear from you! You’re living with Parkinson’s? You are a physiotherapist or carer working with people affected by the disease? Drop us a line!

Keep spreading the word about our early detection app! Data collection to help us refine algorithms screening for Parkinson’s early symptoms will keep going until October 2019. Download the iPrognosis mobile application for free on Google Play Store in Germany, Greece, Portugal and the UK (and soon in Spain!).
