We are excited to announce that Parkinson’s Australia‘s WORLD FIRST app and website is being launched, bringing new hope to those living with Young Onset Parkinson’s. The app is called YOP-X and able to be downloaded for free from your App Store, includes tools which have been uniquely shaped by the first-hand experiences of people living with Young Onset Parkinson’s.

Dr Fiona Kerr and The NeuroTech Institute advised Parkinson’s SA on the development of the app .

YOP-X has been developed as a living lab model. Therefore the experiences, ideas, knowledge and daily needs of people with young onset Parkinson’s have underpinned all YOP-X content. The app has more than one hundred individual stories and experiences shaping tools and resources.

YOP-X also provides a fast track for people with young onset Parkinson’s. So it collects and collates information relevant to their NDIS applications. It acts as a valuable workforce tool for NDIS staff and health professionals.
