This easy-to-use app is designed to be used by patients and exercise therapists dealing with Parkinson's Disease and other forms of Parkinsonism as a source of advice and instructions for daily exercises and movements. The app contains over 50 high quality video and text instructions.
The advice and exercises have been compiled by expert researchers and therapists in the field and are divided into a number of functional domains that can cause problems in the daily life of Parkinson's patients. Both scientific evidence and practical experience are making it increasingly clear that specific exercises and advice can support/provide for improvements in the following domains: walking, posture, changing body position (rising from a chair, turning in bed etc.), balance, keeping the body flexible and relaxed, and overall physical condition.
The IAPRD and IPSEN Pharmaceuticals have been so kind to support the app development.
