The Young Onset Parkinson’s Exchange (YOP-X) App and website is a world first information portal and resource hub supporting people with young onset Parkinson’s diagnosed under the age of 65.
Developed as a living lab model, the experiences, ideas, knowledge and daily needs of people with young onset Parkinson’s have underpinned all App and website content, with more than one hundred individual stories and experiences shaping tools and resources.
Movement Disorder Neurologist, Dr Paul Silberstein, was an expert panel member on the working group that created the app. Dr Silberstein worked alongside patient representatives and their partners from around Australia, web developers and project lead, CEO of Parkinson’s SA, Olivia Nassaris.
YOP-X also provides a fast track for people with young onset Parkinson’s to collect and collate information relevant to their NDIS applications. More information is in the below video or go to www.youngonsetparkinsons.org.au. To download the App, go to the Apple App store or Google Play.
