A widely accepted functional motor test for measuring basic mobility capabilities is the `Timed Up-and-Go' (TUG) test. Although several basic mobility tasks are included, only the total time is used as outcome parameter. It has been shown that timings of sub-phases can be used as relevant clinical parameters for the assessment of Parkinson's disease patients. A variety of systems and methods have been proposed for instrumenting the TUG test, but only limited information has been published… CONTINUE READING
