The partners have also collaborated with Parkinson’s Center of Excellence at King’s College Hospital in London to support their project, reported the BBC.

Medopad develops mobile apps to monitor various conditions such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease and rare diseases.

The firm’s app for Parkinson’s is designed to offer a video test for fine hand movements such as opening and closing the fists, which are then digitally analysed. This will allow doctors to remotely examine the strength and movement tests that are commonly performed in person.
