Parkinson’s disease is a neurological disorder that produces different motor impairments in the patients. The longitudinal assessment of the neurological state of patients is important to improve their quality of life. We introduced Apkinson, a smartphone application to evaluate continuously the speech and movement deficits of Parkinson’s patients, who receive feedback about their current state after performing different exercises. The speech assessment considers phonation, articulation, and prosody capabilities of the patients. Movement exercises captured with the inertial sensors of the smartphone evaluated symptoms in the upper and lower limbs.
