Parkinson’s Disease comes in different forms and stages, as we at Hanson Services know well. Like so many of our clients with age-associated diseases and needs, no two are exactly alike, and our caregivers respond accordingly. However, many diseases have one common factor. Early diagnosis plays a key role in how well our clients and family members manage disease symptoms. The-earlier-the better is the common rule.
So this headline on a graphology website caught my attention. Handwriting analysis is fascinating. My sister is a professional graphologist who, for years, has said handwriting analysis goes far beyond our personality traits and can indicate our physical and emotional health status. An Israeli study backs that claim when it comes to Parkinson’s Disease.
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 you don’t want them, momentary loss of power to where it is supposed to flow. But, remember that many diseases associated with old age might contain shaky or slower writing.
