This paper evaluates the relation between Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome tremors in the left and right hands of patients. By analyzing 122 recordings from 61 patients in emergency departments, we found a weak relationship between the left and right hand tremor frequencies (correlation coefficient of 0.63). We found a much stronger relationship between the(More)
In this paper, we propose a signal processing method of assessing the severity tremors caused by alcohol withdrawal (AW) syndrome. We have developed an iOS application to calculate the Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment (CIWA) score which captures iPod movements using the built-in accelerometer in order to reliably estimate the tremor severity(More)
In this paper, we have introduced a novel method to extract involuntary tremor movement activity in patients with Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS). Using the Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD), we show that the variations of energy of the tremor and voluntary activity can be distinguished in different Intrinsic Mode Functions (IMF) of the recorded tremor(More)
