What if your mobile could detect Parkinson’s before symptoms appear?

A low cost eye test developed at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology offers hope of detecting Parkinson’s disease before symptoms develop.

I’ve been learning so much and having some very interesting experiences since I started carrying an Eye and Retinal Imaging System (by attaching a D-Eye device to my iPhone) and it’s stunning to think of the potential for this technology to be used in Primary Care Screening programmes like you can already see happening across the world with community screening initiatives for AF with the Alivecor ECG.

Can you imagine the potential if big charities investing in Parkinsons research (like the Michael J Fox foundation, Parkinsons UK, etc) worked with an innovative company like D Eye to introduce screening programs and then recruit Citizens and Patients to participate in Mobile First Clinical Trials?
