Abstract
It is known that Parkinson?s Disease (PD) leaves marks in phonation dystonia and tremor. These marks can be expressed as a function of biomechanical characteristics monitoring vocal fold tension and imbalance. These features may assist tracing the neuromotor activity of laryngeal pathways. Therefore these features may be used in grading the stage of a PD patient efficiently, frequently and remotely by telephone or VoIP channels. The present work is devoted to describe and compare the PD symptom severity quantification from neuromotor-sensitive features with respect to other features on a telephone-recorded database. The results of these comparisons are presented and discussed.
