3. Take part in Fox Insight Wearables

As a sub-study of Fox Insight, Fox Insight Wearables is asking people with Parkinson's to use wearable technology to collect large quantities of data about their activity level and symptoms over a long period of time. Participants receive a free Pebble smartwatch in the mail and use an application on their smartphone to collect data about their day-to-day activities. The watch transfers data on their movements to the smartphone app, which then sends the information to the Fox Insight database. This data will be made available to study participants for real-time feedback about their disease, and to the research community to uncover new patterns about Parkinson's disease symptoms and progression. Findings from these analyses can help inform future PD research and drug development efforts. Learn how to participate at: https://www.michaeljfox.org/fox-insight-form.html
