Beneufit’s pdFIT™ is a disease management solution for Parkinson’s patients. The goal of the program is to reduce symptoms, delay disease progression and improve quality of life by leveraging exercise. This is accomplished by prescribing specific exercise protocols designed for Parkinson’s disease patients and continuously monitoring patient health through a series of tests provided through the pdFIT™ app.
According to a 2014 study, the pdFIT™ has improved fitness levels levels and manual dexterity for Parkinson's disease patients. The results of the study can be found at the following URL.

These sensors track your activity while the mobile app coaches you through personalized exercise protocols designed to reduce Parkinson's disease symptoms and delay disease progression.
