Phase one Progress Recorder case study

11 July 2017 - By Scott Heappey

The first release is out and Progress Recorder is available on the app store for both the iPhone and the iPad.

We asked our user who suffers from parkinsonism symptoms to use the app over the course of a month while taking notes in regards to medication, supplements, treatment, mood, stress, environment, diet, exercise and general activities.

Here are his recordings:

Phase one Progress Recorder case study Sunday 25 June 2017 - 02:06 PM

Same medication/supplements. Possibly the worst I have felt. Had a few beers last night. Indian for dinner.

It seems that the user's symptoms are worse with more medication. More eratic and rigid. The medication was increased to try and get more movement and improve 'slowness' but it doesn't seam to be working. Sundays are definately worse than others.

As far as Progress Recorder goes, there is an issue with the time stamp and the app crashes everynow and then. Easy fixes but will need to wait for the next release.
