A patient has good days and bad days … good weeks and bad weeks. Supplements, diet, medication, exercise regime, sleep patterns and stress levels all change on a day to day basis - with no way of recording or tracking their progress.
Our solution is an app that records quantitative data based on hand coordination. The patient can record their progress by drawing a spiral on the iPad or a squiggle on the iPhone using either their finger or a stylus, trying their best to stay within the path and maintain a smooth, consistent movement.
The next step is a tap test where it records their ‘slowness’ by tapping an alternating blue dot as many times as they can in 15 seconds. People who suffer from Parkinson’s will find that the last 10 seconds will get slower and slower.
They then have the option to add notes - anything they feel relevant to their current symptoms - diet, medication, sleep and so on.
Their accuracy and speed is then recorded and graphed to visualise their progress. There is a gallery view where they can analyse the drawings on a day to day and week to week basis, this represents patterns where they can identify possible reasons for the fluctuation of symptoms. Each drawing has a details panel that specifies the test results, daily steps, daily distance, medication, supplements, diet, sleep patterns and stress levels. This information can then be shared with their specialist.
