Anshika Agarwal, California, USA 13-15

Parkinsensor is a smartphone application that assists in the prognosis of Parkinson’s disease. It helps monitor a patient’s symptoms before, during, and after treatment. The app can be ported on smart wearable devices equipped with a similar accelerometer sensor. It is likely that Parkinson’s patients may require constant monitoring of symptoms and the app is designed to handle such conditions. Parkinsensor will benefit its users by decreasing the number of undetected Parkinson’s disease cases and help increase the number of early diagnoses. It will also allow doctors to efficiently monitor their patients’ symptoms and response to treatment. All of these combined factors lead to a better treatment outcome.
