Lift Pulse 2.0, a smart phone app created by Lift Labs, has released the results of data gathered from users since updating the app in June 2013. Lift Pulse 2.0 includes a journal feature that measures and records tremors. It also records what medications you’re taking for tremor and how you’re doing with sleep, exercise and stress. The app stores your journal entries anonymously in Lift Lab’s private database. You have access to this data through your phone and computer, and Lift Lab analyzes it to provide you with information on how different factors affect your tremor.
Among the data extracted from users of Lift Pulse 2.0, Lift Labs found:
- The most commonly used prescription is Propranolol (Inderal®), followed by Primidone (Mysoline®).
- Exercise exacerbates amplitude of tremor.
- People who reported less stress have less severe tremor symptoms.
Lift Pulse 2.0 users have measured their tremor almost 4,000 times so far, and that number continues to grow, according to Lift Labs.
