LSVT Global and StrivePD: Joining Forces to Empower People with Parkinson’s Disease

The Power of Partnership: LSVT Global and StrivePD 

Navigating Parkinson’s disease just got more supportive – LSVT Global and StrivePD are joining forces to empower people with Parkinson’s disease. Our collaborative approach combines LSVT Global’s rehabilitative expertise with LSVT BIG® treatment together with StrivePD’s tech-centric monitoring capabilities to integrate resources to improve personal health tracking, tailor exercise, and ultimately optimize the quality of life for those affected by Parkinson’s.

This partnership aims to improve the way that Parkinson’s disease is managed by offering the ability to track and monitor LSVT BIG® exercise through the StrivePD app. 

StrivePD Application: A Comprehensive Tool for Parkinson’s Patients

StrivePD is a free iOS disease management application, FDA-cleared on the Apple Watch. This innovative Parkinson’s app passively collects daily resting tremor and dyskinesia data through Apple’s Movement Disorder API, providing users with valuable insights into their symptoms.

The StrivePD allow users to:

  • Record and track their symptoms over time
  • Understand how various factors (from medication and diet to exercise) influence their condition
  • Receive medication reminders
  • Access interactive charts to help monitor their symptoms and the effects of medications and physical activity on their well-being

Users can keep a log of their physical activity or therapy, including their LSVT BIG therapy or home practice sessions, fostering motivation to stay active. This empowers users to take control of their health and make informed decisions by providing personalized insights.

This data can be shared with care teams and clinicians, including fitness coaches, physical therapists, and occupational therapists, fostering better communication and more personalized treatment strategies.

LSVT BIG and StrivePD Integration

When the insights from the StrivePD application are combined with the LSVT BIG therapy program, the result is an integrated approach to Parkinson’s treatment. By leveraging mobile health technology and evidence-based therapy protocols, this partnership has fostered advancements in Parkinson’s treatment management, allowing users to track their symptoms in between and during LSVT BIG sessions.

Mobility metrics with symptom and medication data will help clinicians and people with Parkinson’s further understand how their LSVT BIG treatment sessions are impacting disease symptoms. The goal is to provide a more comprehensive picture of Parkinson’s disease, enabling both people with Parkinson’s and clinicians to make informed decisions.

Empowering Through Education

LSVT BIG therapy sessions can be meticulously logged and tracked within the StrivePD app, offering clients a complete perspective on how their therapy is influencing their Parkinson’s disease over time. 

By understanding motor symptoms like tremors, slowed movement, stiffness, and balance issues, individuals can better articulate their experiences to their care teams. Clinicians will then be able to tailor interventions like LSVT BIG physical and occupational therapy sessions and use not only data but their own expertise to make the most impact on one’s quality of life. 

Enabling Better Symptom Management with Exercise

One of StrivePD’s users shared, “LSVT BIG was a game changer for me. Good to see in numbers [on StrivePD] what I felt in my body.” 

Another user emphasized the app’s impact on exercise and symptom control, stating, “While Parkinson’s remains a struggle, StrivePD has helped me realize the importance of exercise and how it dramatically reduces my mobility issues.” 

Users can communicate with clinicians not only verbally, but through data as well. Being able to log LSVT BIG physical and occupational therapy and homework exercise sessions allows users to comprehend how they are progressing and the impact it’s having on their movement. 

Together, we want to improve balance, mobility, and challenging areas for people with Parkinson’s through the power of movement and tailored exercise. LSVT BIG + StrivePD provides people with Parkinson’s to be more aware of the impact that therapy and exercises has on their symptoms. 

Join the Movement with LSVT Global and StrivePD

The partnership between LSVT Global and StrivePD represents an exciting new chapter in Parkinson’s disease management. By combining the power of technology and evidence-based therapy protocols, we are transforming the way Parkinson’s disease is managed, empowering patients to take control of their health and live life on their terms. This partnership is a testament to the power of collaboration and innovation in healthcare, offering a beacon of hope for the millions of people globally living with Parkinson’s disease.
