      There are all kinds of devices, applications, and tools that are tailored for PWP. Spoons and forks can now be purchased to offset tremors. Cellphones can be used for their “talk to speech” features. My dad uses some types of technology to help him with daily tasks. Do you use technology to fight Parkinson’s? If so, which tools have been most helpful?

      I use grabbers, a shower bench, a rollator, a cane, a crescent ‘knife’ to cut meat.
      I am starting to use vocal ‘typing’, have an enlarged bright keyboard and when the time comes, I have a touch PC…the monitor will allow me to use my finger to scroll, x out a page, etc.
      My bed consists of a bunkie board and mattress resting on the bottom steel shelves of
      two small scaffolds. The extra metal ‘arms’ on the sides are good for pulling myself out of bed, etc.

          It keeps track of the size, color, type (hard vs soft scale), and other things.

      Bom dia.

      Fui diagnisticado com doença de parkinsson há 8 anos. Tenho 71 anos.

      Nesta fase da doença, ainda não necessito de qualquer apoio.Vivo sózinho, cozinho, alimento-me,faço higiene pessoal, conduzuo,faço pequena agricultura, engomo a roupa, limpo casa.A minha maior dificuldade é o sono.Não tomo nada para dormir.No entanto já cheguei á conclusão que a última refeição, deve ser rica em fruta e legumes e nada de acucar.Embora goste de acucar depois das 12/13 horas evito.
