How can we together better manage the symptoms of Parkinson disease?
Living with Parkinson disease means coping with symptoms that change daily. Yet these daily changes are not tracked frequently enough. Parkinson mPower is a personal tool and research instrument to track symptoms of Parkinson disease, review trends and share this information with researchers.
Sage Bionetworks, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit research organization in collaboration with University of Rochester welcomes you to use Parkinson mPower to track your symptoms and take part in the world's largest and most comprehensive study of this disease.
The Parkinson mPower app uses questionnaires, sensor data from your phone and optional wearable device data to help you track your condition 24x7.
● Innovative activity-based measurements of Parkinson symptoms that include a memory game, finger tapping, voice recording, and walking.
● Share insights and partner with researchers
● Get educated about symptom variations
● Import daily physical activity measurement though Apple Health app
To join this study you need to:
• Be 18 or older
• Have Parkinson disease or not (be a control).
• Be a U.S. resident
• Have a personal iPhone 4S or newer running iOS 8.0 or above and is compatible with latest generation iPod touch.
This app will read and/or write data from Apple's Health App with your permission.
Together we are taking a bold first step to establish a partnership between you and Parkinson researchers in ways that will help us learn from one another. Install Parkinson mPower app today and let’s work together to better understand this disease.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Note: After you join the study, we will send you a copy of your signed consent form to your email address. Please check your spam folder if you do not receive it.
What's New in Version 1.3
Daily check-in assessments
Monthly data report for a subset of participants
Better scheduling for those with and without PD
Improved medication tracking
Improved tapping and gait assessments
Quiz is totally unnecessary
Gave up after 2 trial. After like hundreds of taps of instructions a compulsory quiz which fails you even you choose one wrong answer. Decided to volunteer but giving up.
Remove quiz and I will come back.
(From iOS app developer.)
Crashes after completing an activity when participation is paused thus forces you to participate in the study, not very good.
Crashes every time.
Does not work on my iPhone 6.
