Wearable sensing and disease monitoring in home environment

Abstract

Wearable sensing can be applied for monitoring various diseases. Accelerometers distributed over a person’s body convey important information about symptoms of motor system disorders, for example Parkinson‘s disease. By interpreting the measured data carefully it is possible to exploit obtained information in disease diagnosis, research and treatment. How can we make wearable distributed sensing also suitable for disease monitoring? In this position paper we present preliminary experiments, in which wearable sensing is applied to detect symptoms of Parkinson disease. Moreover, we present and discuss opportunities and challenges related to the approach.
