Many people with Parkinson's disease suffer from freezing of gait, a debilitating temporary inability to pursue walking. Rehabilitation with wearable technology is promising. State of the art approaches face difficulties in providing the needed bio-feedback with a sufficient low-latency and high accuracy, as they rely solely on the crude analysis of movement patterns allowed by commercial motion sensors. Yet the medical literature hints at more sophisticated approaches. In this work we present… CONTINUE READING
