Parkinson's disease (PD) is a degenerative neurological disorder. Patients suffer from different movement disturbances. Amongst others, freezing of gait (FOG) is a common and disabling feature. A new method for FOG detection using a garment with integrated accelerometers, the MiMed-Pants, is presented and evaluated. MiMed-Pants are loose fitting washable pants for measuring movements and were previously developed. The accelerations of shanks and belt of 6 patients were recorded while walking on… CONTINUE READING
