Abstract

Tremor is the most common symptoms of Parkinson?s Disease (PD) and Essential Tremor (ET). Its detection and analysis during daily living plays a crucial role in the treatment of PD and ET patients. It is typically assessed in the clinic with certain tremor rating scales, which are qualitative, subjectdependent and do not necessarily reflect the real situation of the patient. In this paper, a system composed of a smartwatch, a smartphone and a NoSQL database sever is used to monitor the movements of the patients. A novel data analysis method is proposed to detect tremor and identify the connected actions. Tremor can be detected on the basis of the movement frequency difference and voluntary actions can also be recognized based on the rich information from the collected data. It helps clinicians to analyze the relationship between the tremor and a certain action. A series of simulated experiments are conducted to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed system and data analysis method. The result shows that tremor happened during different situations can be detected with an adequate accuracy with the data collected by the proposed system. The actions around the tremor can also be identified.
