Abstract

Researches have shown that physical exercise in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) is an effective method reduce or limit the progress of the disease and improve physical and psychological health. However, exercise adherence is a challenge task. Many existing mobile exercise apps did not consider the special conditions of people with PD. This paper aims to design a mobile app to support physical exercise adherence among people with PD. Through the design of the app, we hope to test and contribute to the improvement of the existing guidelines and recommendations for mobile apps for people with PD.
