Mobile phone app to help people with Parkinson's to communicate better

Mobile phone software is being developed to help Parkinson’s sufferers improve their speech


Mobile phone software is being developed to help Parkinson’s sufferers improve their speech. A technology specialist has been given a £35,000 grant by charity Parkinson’s UK. Dr Roger Eglin, based at Portsmouth University, said: “We’ve got a basic app but it needs to be further improved and tailored specifically for those with the disease.”

Dr Kieran Breen, of the charity, said: “Speech problems affect 70% of sufferers. This app used in everyday life has the exciting potential to help them.”
