Michael J. Fox Working with Intel On a Smartwatch for Parkinson’s Patients

up

Smartwatches can help you keep up with your notifications, track your activity, and find your phone. You can do much more with them though. It is certainly exciting to hear that the Michael J. Fox Foundation is now working with Intel to develop a wearable device for folks dealing with Parkinson’s disease. As reported on USA Today, the device will track Parkinson’s patients 24/7. It will be like FitBit and gather data to help experts get a better insight into the disease and how to deal with it.

The project aims to measure patient gait, tremors and sleep patterns, among other metrics, and stream the data to the cloud in real time. Intel will be providing the servers and software to collect and manage the data. The project still has ways to go, but it will be interesting to see how it will turn out.
