Abstract
The aim of this paper is to describe and present the architecture and assessment of Akinesia in Parkinson?s disease (PD) patients using wireless, wearable accelerometers. The current work is related to a specific module of the PERFORM system, a FP7 project from the European Commission, that aimed at providing an innovative and reliable tool, able to evaluate, monitor and manage patients suffering from PD. Previous works indicate a correlation between the lack of movement of PD patients and the OFF phase. Following this approach, PERFORM system uses the Akinesia assessment, combined with the output provided by the developed modules related to other PD symptoms (such as bradykinesia and dyskinesia), in order to automatically discriminate ON and OFF periods in PD patients.
