Gaming app to help people with Parkinson's disease
An app called Cognitia PD has been developed to help people with Parkinson's disease.
Parkinsons affects the nervous system. The signs are shaking, rigidity and difficulty in walking.
The app is made up of many mini-games with different levels. As people with Parkinson's disease play the games, researchers collect the data.
Information about the patient's memory and time taken to react is saved.
The app helps track the daily or weekly changes in a patient's disease. These can be used by doctors to decide the medicine needed by them.
The app is being tested and will soon be available to all.
