StrivePD: Empowering Parkinson's Patients with Personalized Insights

In the realm of healthcare technology, Rune Labs is revolutionizing the lives of individuals with Parkinson's disease through StrivePD—a powerful application that redefines personalized care and symptom management. 

Below, we dive into the latest StrivePD updates, fostering a new era of patient-centric healthcare.

Unlocking the Power of Personalized Insights: StrivePD empowers patients to provide and understand their symptom insights beyond the clinic. Our latest updates enable users to delve into their data, gaining valuable insights into their symptoms. The symptoms chart display provides a comprehensive analysis of daily resting tremor and dyskinesia recorded by the Apple Watch. Similar to how a closed-loop continuous glucose monitor has transformed diabetes care, StrivePD transforms Parkinson's disease management. By wearing the watch consistently, patients can have meaningful conversations with their clinicians and develop personalized care strategies. Just as a continuous glucose monitor provides individuals with instant feedback on their glucose levels, StrivePD offers tremor and dyskinesia, both of which are FDA cleared measures. Users can have real-time data at their fingertips.

Elevating the Understanding of Motor Symptoms: Understanding the intricate nuances of motor symptoms is critical in managing Parkinson's disease effectively. StrivePD bridges the knowledge gap by offering an educational breakdown of the key symptoms—tremors, slowed movement, stiffness, and balance issues—that patients may encounter. By fostering deep comprehension and differentiation between tremor and dyskinesia, individuals can take an active role in their treatment plans. With this knowledge, patients become powerful advocates, enabling their healthcare providers to make informed decisions, tailor medication regimens, and implement strategies to alleviate these symptoms effectively.

Reimagining Activity Logging: StrivePD's commitment to holistic care extends beyond symptom tracking. Our enhanced activity logging features revolutionize the way patients engage with their daily routines, offering a personalized and customizable experience. Patients can visualize the impact of physical activity on symptom management, unlocking the potential of exercise as a powerful tool in their Parkinson's journey. This empowerment fosters well-being and active participation in care plans.

Rock Steady Boxing Partnership: Exercise has emerged as a powerful disease-modifying treatment for Parkinson's disease, with numerous studies highlighting its benefits for mobility, balance, and overall well-being. At Rune Labs, we are committed to harnessing the potential of personalized insights to optimize exercise regimens for individuals living with Parkinson's. We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Rock Steady Boxing (RSB), a respected non-profit organization specializing in non-contact boxing for people with Parkinson's. Through the StrivePD platform, users can now easily log their RSB class attendance and track the impact on their symptoms over time. RSB’s comprehensive multi-modal program also emphasizes functional fitness, a critical component for reducing fall risk. By leveraging StrivePD, users can share valuable information with their clinicians, who can assess, for example, gait and step length as important predictors of falls. Together, we want to empower people with Parkinson's to take control of their health and quality of life, especially through programs like RSB backed by data from StrivePD.

Empowering Clinicians through Mobility Insights: At the core of StrivePD's mission lies the understanding that successful Parkinson's management needs a symbiotic relationship between patients and clinicians. To continue to facilitate this collaboration, we have introduced a mobility feature tailored to clinicians' needs on StrivePD’s clinician dashboard. Leveraging the data provided by Apple HealthKit from the iPhone and Apple Watch, this feature allows clinicians to assess patients' movement capabilities, gain insights into disease progression, and understand the impact on quality of life. Armed with this information, clinicians can refine interventions, optimize treatment plans, and deliver truly personalized care that transcends the confines of traditional clinical settings.

These StrivePD updates redefine Parkinson's disease management. With personalized insights, patient empowerment, and clinician collaboration at the forefront, we pave the way for a new paradigm in healthcare. Through StrivePD, people living with Parkinson's can reclaim control over their health, gain an understanding of their symptoms and become true partners in their care. Together, we forge a path towards a future where personalized insights drive optimized outcomes, enhancing the lives of individuals with Parkinson's and inspiring the healthcare community to embrace transformative technologies.
