I’m a student at Lehigh University taking a product innovation course and my group’s assignment is to design a product related to improving the smartphone experience for those with Parkinson’s. I’d really like to learn more from people first hand.
We really appreciate you taking the time to provide us with some insights to help us better understand the problem. We take your feedback very seriously and wish to incorporate it into our final product. Google Forms survey: https://forms.gle/rKZAmkQtM9HqqrQ19
Finally! Someone is thinking about a smart phone usable by a Parkie! Not just a tracking app, but an actual, usable phone.
I would think about a ‘clickey’ keyboard, and a screen that can be calibrated for sensitivity. I am really tired of the multiple hits due to my tremors, and unintentional apps starting up after a lazy finger has the slightest brush across the screen.
That’s my first reaction. Thanks for asking.
