Propionate Supplements and Parkinson's: New Research

In order to improve mobility and safety in everyday life, the medical technology company Portabiles HealthCare Technologies has developed the hybrid care model ParkinsonGo TM together with neurologists and patients. ParkinsonGo TM has been successfully tested and has been reimbursed by several health insurance companies in Germany since January 2024.

App and nurses accompany you in everyday life
ParkinsonGo TM combines precise gait analysis and a smartphone app with intensive support from Parkinson Telenurses. The aim is to slow down the progression of the disease, maintain mobility and independence and thereby improve the quality of life of those affected. Using sensors attached to the shoes, the ParkinsonGo app analyzes gait quality and records symptom patterns (e.g. poor mobility) as well as everyday challenges in a diary. Intelligent algorithms derive personalized recommendations for action in the form of physiotherapeutic exercise plans and tips for dealing with the disease.
