i-PROGNOSIS Newsletter #16: Successful completion… and next steps!

27th of September 2020

Successful completion… and next steps!

Hi reader,

For four years i-PROGNOSIS partners have been working closely with Parkinson’s disease patients, their relatives, medical doctors and a community of volunteers triggered by the challenge of our research project.The ambition was to develop the first non-intrusive mobile app detecting early signs of Parkinson’s and a new set of interventions to help patients sustain their quality of life.

Any research is only as good as the people contributing to it. That’s why we would like to extend a big Thank you! to all the professionals around the globe that contributed to release the iPrognosis app in new countries, the volunteers who tried the iPrognosis app (still available on the Google Play Store*), the iPrognosis smartwatch app, and the iPrognosis personalised gaming suite. Your contributions and feedback have helped us greatly to improve our prototypes!

The results of our 4-year research are progressively made available on our website through scientific publications (see our ‘Publications’ here) and project reports (see our ‘Public Deliverables’ here). You will find our latest releases in this newsletter.

As the project has come to an end, we are already working on the next steps, continuing our data collection with the iPrognosis mobile application and preparing a follow-up research project building on the most promising results of i-PROGNOSIS.

 

You would like to keep in touch? Follow us on Twitter or Facebook

The iPrognosis mobile application is still available for free on Google Play Store in Australia, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Portugal, Spain and the UK. Keep spreading the word and help us refine algorithms screening for Parkinson’s early symptoms.
