Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a condition which affects one in 500 people. This disease progressively damages parts of the brain over the time leading to wide range of both physical and psychological symptoms. The diagnostic tools currently available require a specialist using lab based equipment. This project looks at the feasibility of using an Android smartphone’s Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) to provide a cheaper and more accessible alternative.
