Abstract

The reality of a Parkinson’s Disease patient involves coping with the condition 24 hours a day for the rest of her or his life. A continuous decay of physical and sometimes cognitive functions makes activities of daily life progressively more difficult to accomplish. Many keep a diary where they take note of feelings, relevant events related to the daily routines, reaction to the medication, etc. Such diaries may prove extremely useful for a better understanding of the disease progression, both by the patient and by the doctor. The SENSE-PARK project went a step forward: it combines the patient diary notes (self-reported) with information gathered from movement sensors (automatic measurement) and a visualization mechanism combining the two. A system has been designed, prototyped and tested. Parkinson’s medical specialists, user experience experts, technologists and most important the patients themselves, were involved in this process.
