If you're like me, you'll want to measure your Parkinson's symptoms. As part of that, I've written an app that counts the number of side to side finger taps that you can do in a set period of time. It works by you repeatedly typing q followed by p using only one finger. It should work on any computer with a keyboard, but it won't work on a tablet or smart phone. The app can be run directly (there is no need to install anything) from:
This program doesn't store any results. If you would like your results stored so that you can see how they change with time, you can register with PDMeasure and run the test from there. See:
Note: the results are stored anonymously, but they can be viewed by anyone.
Results and simple statistics (click on Statistics) are available immediately. These currently show:
137 people have registered and done the initial survey
71 people have done the medications survey
786 tap test results have been collected, with mean values in 30 seconds of 20.7 (left hand) and 20.4 (right hand).
