Tom House, PhD, is a former major league pitcher and currently the throwing coach to dozens of MLB pitchers and NFL quarterback, including Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Matt Ryan. Diagnosed with Parkinson's about five years ago, Tom brings all his experience as an athlete, coach, and sports physiology researcher to a daily program for Parkinson's patients. The most important thing to Tom? Daily exercise. The name of his program? "Just Do Something Every Day." www.justdosomethingeveryday.com

Just Do Something Every Day combines the FocusBand wearable brain frequency measuring device with a mobile app, creating a neuro-physiological daily exercise program. It's well known that exercise is one of the best medicines for Parkinson's. Exercise allows the remaining dopamine in the brain to be used more effectively, leading to longer "on times." Neurofeedback allows the user to "train" the brain to be in a better state during exercise, making the exercise more effective. More effective exercise means better results, creating longer on times.

Tom's goal: create an inexpensive, non-invasive program that can help every single person with Parkinson's.
