Beneufit’s pdFIT™ is a disease management solution for Parkinson’s patients. The goal of the program is to reduce symptoms, delay disease progression and improve quality of life by leveraging exercise. This is accomplished by prescribing specific exercise protocols designed for Parkinson’s disease patients and continuously monitoring patient health through a series of tests provided through the pdFIT™ app.
Jeff Broderick, Beneufit’s CEO said “pdFIT™ is an important tool for Parkinson’s disease patients who are fighting to remain independent and delay disease progression. We’ve seen significant improvement in fitness capacity and motor control for those engaged in our program. Now that we’re included in the AppScript™ platform we’ll be able to connect with patients and physicians in a novel and thoughtful manner.”
