Apple Watch to introduce new technology to track Parkinson’s disease symptoms

Parkinson’s is one of the most dreadful diseases that occur in the elderly. Researchers have not been able to find a medication to treat this disease that affects the brain. According to experts, the main treatment for Parkinson’s is love, care and attention from loved ones.

Apple is all set to introduce an assistive technology to track symptoms of Parkinson’s disease in elderly through the Apple watch!

The new research kit will track the Parkinson’s affected person throughout the day. It tracks the two movements that are related to Parkinson’s disease. These are tremors while at rest and fidgeting and swaying. The second symptoms are usually caused due to medication that is given to suppress the tremors.

Usually, the patient has to frequently visit clinics in order to keep a check on the disease. This way, doctors are not able to get a complete picture of the disease and its development in the patient. With this new technology, doctors can definitely get a better insight!

Apple is yet to give out more details about the new assistive technology. But this one will definitely be a blessing to millions of elderly who are suffering from Parkinson’s disease across the world.
