The device developed for Emma in the programme is a one-off design that was created especially for her. Unfortunately, it is not available to buy at this stage. The developers plan to make the design available for free so that it can be made more widely accessible, but this may take some time.
The production company are inviting people who have Parkinson’s and are interested in getting involved with any potential research and development, to email their full name, contact number and email address to: email@example.com
If you're looking for aids and devices and haven't found any that are suitable for you, it’s worth getting in touch with Remap. Remap is a national charity with hundreds of volunteers who design and custom-make equipment to help people achieve independence and quality of life. Filling the gap where no suitable equipment is available commercially, they provide the equipment free of charge.
Find out more at www.remap.org.uk or call them on 01732 760209.
In terms of what we're doing here at Parkinson's UK, check out this video of our Digital Transformation Director, Julie talking about how we want to use digital technology to manage Parkinson's.
I hope this helps! Please do let us know if you have more questions.
Best wishes, Joanne - Digital team.
