Smartphones may allow disease self-management, which is relevant for people with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) in need of frequent medication adjustments. Yet, there is little data on the interaction of people with PD with smartphones. We describe the processes of the design and usability evaluation of a smartphone medication application for PD. Results show that participants with PD were generally able to successfully interact with the tailored user interfaces (UI), and grasp navigation and organization principles designed into the application. The paper lists issues for UI improvement and further testing.
