The health tracking app myHealthPal®, which captures and visualises the data of Parkinson’s patients, has been entered into the Voom 2016 Virgin mentoring competition.

The creator of the app, Mike Barlow, has been developing solutions to manage long-term health conditions, improve health outcomes and support research through data since he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s aged 41.

The app was a finalist in both the September 2015 Meffys awards in the Most Innovative App category and November 2015  Appsters awards in the Most Influential Startup category.

Mr Barlow, founder, myHealthPal, said: “Visit the website and click the ‘Vote for project’ button to help us have a chance of mentoring by Richard Branson’s Virgin.”
