Research: Tremor analysis

A tremor of various parts of the body can occur as a symptom of different diseases. These include Parkinson's disease and essential tremor. Both belong to the most common neurological diseases. While Parkinson's disease has other symptoms such as slowed movements or rigid muscles, essential tremor is a description of the disease itself.

Differentiating between different diseases on the basis of the tremor has proven to be difficult. The tremor characteristics of different diseases overlap and cannot be clearly distinguished. Therefore, many misdiagnoses between different diseases occur. Based on a misdiagnosis, a therapeutic approach can lead to a degradation of the symptoms and the course of the disease. 

An analysis of different characteristics and other features of different tremors should be used to increase the accuracy of diagnoses. For this purpose, different sensors, such as EMG or acceleraction sensors, are used to record the respective tremor. In addition, features are extracted that are processed using different machine learning algorithms.
