What's the big idea? Citizen science.

This site aims to help people with Parkinson's (PwP):

  • by writing free apps to better measure and better manage their symptoms;
  • by collecting and analysing huge amounts of objective data about the relationship between Parkinson's Disease and foods, supplements, drugs, exercise, lifestyle and the environment.

We plan to do this by combining:

  • the skills, experiences and efforts of PwP;
  • computer based symptom measurement;
  • internet based data entry.


PwP EXPERIENCE + INTERNET + ONLINE TESTS → DATA


PWP SKILLS, TIME, COMPUTERS → ANALYSIS


DATA + ANALYSIS → PROGRESS
