Using wearables to tackle Parkinson’s; Micheal Fox Organization Teams with Intel
The common method for diagnosing Parkinson’s disease is a 60-question test, with answers rated on a scale of 1 to 5. “Pass” the test, and you’ve got Parkinson’s
mHealth is going to change that.
Intel and the Michael J. Fox Foundation are joining forces on a project to collect and analyze data from Parkinson’s patients through wearable devices – more specifically, a Pebble watch. The idea is that a wrist-borne monitor will give researchers more insight to the debilitating disease than any Q&A.
