  1. 1. Wearable sensors for monitoring epilepsy and Parkinson´s disease

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Dongni Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epilepsy; Parkinson’s disease; Wearable sensors; Continuous and objective monitoring; End users’ perceptions; Qualitative content analysis; Machine learning algorithms; Tonic-clonic seizure detection; Dose titration; Motor state recognition;

    Abstract : Introduction: Epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease (PD) are conditions where management would benefit greatly from monitoring symptoms over longer time periods in natural everyday environments instead of only intermittent assessments at clinics. Wearable technology with built-in sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes, could allow continuous and objective long-term monitoring of movement patterns. READ MORE
