Changes in the pattern of motor activities during sleep can be a disease marker, or can reflect various abnormal physiological and neurological conditions. Currently, there are no unobtrusive ways to assess the quality of sleep at point of care outside of a clinic. In this paper, we propose an alternative method of detecting movements during sleep that can be deployed unobtrusively in a patient’s own home by using load cells sensors. This subject-independent method uses a linear discriminant… CONTINUE READING
