    Abstract : A challenge for the clinical management of Parkinson's disease (PD) is the large within- and between-patient variability in symptom profiles as well as the emergence of motor complications which represent a significant source of disability in patients. This thesis deals with the development and evaluation of methods and systems for supporting the management of PD by using repeated measures, consisting of subjective assessments of symptoms and objective assessments of motor function through fine motor tests (spirography and tapping), collected by means of a telemetry touch screen device.

  2. 2. Quantitative Assessment of Intelligent Transport Systems for Road Freight Transport

    University dissertation from Karlskrona : Blekinge Institute of Technology

    Author : Gideon Mbiydzenyuy; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Transport telematic services; Assessment; Freight transport; Quantitative; Modeling; Decision support systems;

    Abstract : In this thesis, methods for using computer-based models as support tools for assessing Transport Telematic Services (TTSs) are studied. Such assessments provide one way to understand how TTSs can address problems caused by transportation, such as accidents, emissions, and energy consumption. READ MORE
