Handwriting offers clues to early Parkinson’s detection

Israeli researchers have found an innovative and non-invasive method of diagnosing Parkinson’s Disease in its early stages. There is no clinical way to diagnose the disease, usually characterized by uncontrollable physical tremors, but the scientists at Gai University say diagnosis is as simple as writing your own name. Tara Cleary reports for Reuters International.


Handwriting used to detect Parkinson’s in medical study. Fascinating video. Signs include: Consistent shakes , spikes & quivers in the scribe where u don’t want them = momentary loss of power to where it is supposed to flow. But, remember that many many diseases associated with old age might contain shaky or slower writing. Don’t freak out if your parents handwriting isn’t as clear as it used to be.
