Abstract
Freezing of gait (FoG) is one of the most disturbing and least understood symptoms in Parkinson’s disease (PD). One of the specificities of FoG is its dependency on the context of the patient, such as current location or a task at hand. Recent advances in assistive technology have strived towards the realization of personal health systems able to prolong independent living capability of people experiencing the symptom. So far, only solutions based on wearable sensing exist, but these systems d...
