Way for people to understand how difficult it is shaking with a note saying ‘it’s not just the shakes’
A UK based design school specialises in the environment created for people with Dementia. Questioning practicality and the disease. Many people with PD will eventually get Dementia.
My first thought of developing the project around Parkinson’s is based around the people affected by their family member or friend having the disease, not the person fighting Parkinson’s.
My experience with my father having PD was frightening as the unknown often is, I was also made to promise never to search PD online as in most cases any research online shows the worst case scenarios. Naturally the internet is an efficient way to research but the obstacles lie in the information that isn’t relevant. PD doesn’t effect any 2 people the same way and ranges from being contracted due to injury (Ali) it can come about for reasons unknown and about 15% of people with PD have it as a genetic trait they have inherited.
