Parkinson’s disease is a neurological movement disorder that effects more than 10 million people worldwide . Symptoms start gradually, sometimes as a barely noticeable tremor in one hand. These symptoms worsen as the condition progresses . A rating scale, MDS-UPDRS is used universally to assess the symptoms of Parkinson’s, it’s used to provide information on the severity of the condition and the quality of life of the patient.  Studies have supported that those who exercise or attend physical therapy sessions regularly have better function and quality of life as well as slowing disease progression . However, some problems associated with these therapies are subjective evaluations, lack of accessibility, or lack of continuous data . COVID has brought further limitations in the delivery of clinical care, reducing time with therapists and doctors, whilst increasing the preference for at-home care.
