MJFFSensors (Android + Android Wear for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research)



This app is designed to detect the effectiveness of different Parkinson’s drugs. Using a series of sensors and tests people who have Parkinson’s can use this app to evaluate their effectiveness.

The app records many of the different sensors on the phone and stores this data for periodic upload. Data is encrypted and securely sent to medical research teams using the custom server which I also built. The app can be entirely customised by overriding JSON files that are placed on the sdcard or internal storage.

Since the initial version of this app another large pharmaceutical has taken it on board for use in their fight against Parkinsons.


This app also runs on smart watches.
