Parkinson's and technology resources

Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition. This means that it causes problems in the brain and gets worse over time. Most people who develop Parkinson’s are over 50, but younger people can develop it too. Parkinson’s develops when cells in the brain stop working properly and are lost over time.

Symptoms of Parkinson’s develop slowly over the years and can vary from person to person, but technology can help support you in managing some of the symptoms.
