    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.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Trumljud är det ljud som hörs i ett rum då ett objekt, till exempel en fot, träffar golvytan i samma rum. Ökande användning av tunna och hårda golvbeläggningar, såsom parkett och laminatgolv, kan leda till ljudstarka och skarpa ljud, vilket har ökat intresset av trumljud. READ MORE
