Abstract
Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease that alters the patients' motor performance. Patients suffer many motor symptoms: bradykinesia, dyskinesia and freezing of gait, among others. Furthermore, patients alternate between periods in which they are able to move smoothly for some hours (ON state), and periods with motor complications (OFF state). An accurate report of PD motor states and symptoms will enable doctors to personalize medication intake and, therefore, improve response...
