Parkinson Disease Patients
Patients with PD will be recruited at Fondazione Policlinico Universitario Gemelli and Fondazione Don Gnocchi ONLUS in Rome. All included patients will be affected by idiopathic PD. Clinical data will be acquired by a trained neurologist.
We will remotely monitor 300 patients through wearable sensors. Subjects will be instructed to wear the sensor for 14 consecutive days.
Device: Werable sensors
Parkinson Disease Patients monitored by werable sensors
- Correlations between inertial sensor-derived measures of motor function and clinician ratings during performance of the UPDRS part 3 and total exam at baseline [ Time Frame: Fourteen days ]Features extracted from continuous accelerometer signals recorded during real life for fourteen days, will be correlated with each relevant component of the UPDRS part 3 and corresponding clinician ratings to quantify the relationship between these measures.
- Time Up&Go [ Time Frame: Baseline ]Time Up&Go is a simple test used to assess a person's mobility and requires both static and dynamic balance. It uses the time that a person takes to rise from a chair, walk three meters, turn around, walk back to the chair, and sit down. During the test, the person is expected to wear their regular footwear and use any mobility aids that they would normally require.
