I’m very pleased to say that I don't have any friends or relatives who suffer from Parkinson’s disease, but I would certainly recommend this app to them if I did.

There is a ton of information in this app and everything is presented in a wonderfully clear and concise format which I think will be a massive lot of help to a great deal of people.

Get Your Questions Answered

This app has an awesome home screen which features a 3 x 3 grid of icons for easy navigation.

The Symptoms section is split up into two main categories which cover Motor Symptoms and Non-Motor Symptoms, and within each of these is a subcategory for the various symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease, such as Tremor, Gait Disorder, Anxiety, Pain, and Swallowing Difficulties.

Tapping on each symptom will provide you with even more details, giving you a basic overview of the symptom type as well as information on diagnosis and treatment. I’m amazed by the level of detail in this section as you can also view references and access follow-on links for even more details.

 

Improve Your Quality of Life

I especially like the Living Well section which includes details on subjects such as:

  • Nutrition & PD;
  • Adjusting to Home Living;
  • Caring for Someone;
  • Insurance;
  • Legal Issues; and
  • Driving with PD.

As with the Symptoms section, each category within the Living Well section includes a fantastic amount of information with everything you could possibly need to answer any burning questions you might have.

There are many more sections covering issues like Treatment, Doctor Visits, Research, and more, and the majority of the content within Parkinson’s Central can also be shared with your friends and family online via Facebook, Twitter, and email.
