With the season’s greetings approaching comes the New Year’s wishes. We all hope that the medicine of tomorrow will find a cure for Parkinson’s disease. But in the meantime, several new solutions could help people living with the disease better cope with it.

This is the resolution of i-PROGNOSIS: improving Parkinson’s disease detection to make sure appropriate treatments are offered from the very onset of the disease and therefore slow down its progression. With all mobile health solutions currently being developed, a huge leap forward is just around the corner!

This end of year, contribute to the improvement of Parkinson’s disease detection by making a donation to the i-PROGNOSIS project… Download the iPrognosis mobile app on Google Play Store and share your smartphone interaction data, anonymously, to help neurologists and engineers develop the medical solutions of tomorrow!

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
