A Miniature Multisensor Biosignal Data Recorder and its Evaluation for Unsupervised Parkinson’s Disease Data Collection

  title={A Miniature Multisensor Biosignal Data Recorder and its Evaluation for Unsupervised Parkinson’s Disease Data Collection},
  author={Chris Bailey and Garry Hollier and A. Moulds and Michael J. Freeman and J. Austin and A. Fargus and T. Lampert},
An improved miniature biosignal data sensor and recorder device is described, (NAT-1-4G) with 3-axis accelerometer, and a 2K Sa/sec all-channel recording capacity of 24 hours or more with a single zinc-air battery cell. Like the previous NAT-1 prototype device, this measures less than 18x22x10mm and weighs less than 2.3 grams, including the battery. In this paper we describe the device in detail, and introduce the presentation of tremor data measurement captured in the context of Parkinson’s… Expand
Evaluating a Miniature Multisensor Biosignal Recorder for Unsupervised Parkinson's Disease Monitoring
An improved miniature biosignal data sensor and recorder device is described, (NAT-1-4G) with 3-axis accelerometer, and a 500 Sa/sec all-channel recording capacity of 36 hours or more with a singleExpand
On the use of continuous wavelet transforms to analyse accelerometer data collected by the NAT device to characterise Parkinson's disease
This Thesis examines the use of wavelets like those used in the Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT), using wavelets extracted from the data itself, to try and detect features in the data pertaining to PD patients and controls, and believes that it has successfully automatically detected distinct features.

Modular design of a long-term portable recorder for physiological signals
Abstract A portable biomedical signal recorder is valuable for the detection of acute symptoms. By the use of an ambulatory recorder, investigators and clinicians have more opportunity to analyzeExpand
Technical and clinical view on ambulatory assessment in Parkinson's disease
It is hypothesized that ambulatory quantitative assessment strategies will allow users, clinicians, and scientists in the future to gain more quantitative, unobtrusive, and everyday relevant data out of their clinical evaluation and can also be designed as pervasive and intensive tools for ambulatory assessment and even rehabilitation of motor and (partly) non‐motor symptoms in PD.

Quantitative wearable sensors for objective assessment of Parkinson's disease
This review discusses promising wearable technology, addresses which parameters should be prioritized in such assessment strategies, and reports about studies that have already investigated daily life issues in PD using this new technology. Expand
Wireless accelerometer configuration for monitoring Parkinson's disease hand tremor
Parkinson’s disease is neurodegenerative in nature and associated with characteristic movement disorders, such as hand tremor. Wireless accelerometer applications may advance the quality of care forExpand
A Micro-power EEG acquisition SoC with integrated seizure detection processor for continuous patient monitoring
A complete SoC is presented, performing lowpower EEG acquisition, digitization, and local digital-processing to extract detection features, reducing the transmission-rate by 43x and its topology simultaneously optimizes noise-efficiency and input-impedance to maximize electrode signal-integrity.
