Parkinson mPower Research Study

USED IN PDCNY TO SHARE DATA WITH CLINICIANS

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. The Parkinson mPower app uses questionnaires, sensor data from your phone and optional wearable device data to help you track your condition 24x7.

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.
