Diagnosing Early Parkinson’s Disease

Do you suspect that you or a loved one may have Parkinson’s Disease? It’s the second-most common neuro- degenerative disease in the over-60’s, but people may have it for up to a decade before it is diagnosed. KeySense provides a simple, free screening test that you can do on your own computer in just a few minutes, and it’s been used by tens of thousands of people.

The Problem

The problem with Parkinson’s (PD) is that the early symptoms are often subtle, varied and ill-defined. And even though most people think that hand tremor is one indicator, that’s often not so - there is more than one type of tremor, and the most common type is completely unrelated to Parkinson’s Disease! Until now there has not been any definitive diag- nostic test for the disease, and diagnosis has relied on close observation of your movement features, in conjunction with a range of other potential indicators. Unfortunately first-line medical practitioners such as GP’s don’t have the specialized training and have a quite high misdiagnosis rate of PD - they don’t pick it up in more than 25% of cases and so it can continue undiagnosed for many years. This isn’t a criticism of GP’s at all - early diag- nosis relies on having extensive specialized experience of PD. Neurologists have that expertise, but you need to be referred to them first. This often becomes a real Catch-22 situation in practice.
But why is getting an assessment impor- tant? You are probably visiting this website because you (or a family member) are concerned - it may be a niggling worry about having some of the symptoms of Parkinson’s or you may have already discussed things with a medical practi- tioner. In any event, being able to establish with more certainty whether or not you may have the disease will itself take away some of the stress (and potentially get you started on medication to reduce the effects of the disease).

The KeySense Solution

Since Parkinson’s is primarily a disease which affects movement, the KeySense approach is to assess the movement of your hands and fingers, which is where typing comes into the equation. As you type, it is possible for us to analyze your keystrokes down to millisecond accu- racy, and use a suite of AI techniques to assess the cadence and rhythm of your typing. In someone with early Parkinson’s, the finger movement patterns are different to those of people without the disease.
KeySense is based on proven science and involved research studies with many thou- sands of typing samples. The methodology has been scientifically peer reviewed and the results have been extensively validated. See what others say about KeySense here

Do I need to be a good typist to do

the assessment?

Not at all. The KeySense techniques don’t care about how quickly you type or how many mistakes you make. Even slow, two- finger typing is fine - we are mainly assessing the pattern of finger rhythms. We will ask you to transcribe a passage of text, then you will have the KeySense results immediately. The results are shown as scores across multiple movement attributes - it is not a pass/fail assessment or a diagnosis, but shows how you compare to others. Have a look at a sample report here
