Abstract
BACKGROUND: Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease that predominantly alters patients' motor performance. Reduced step length and inability of step are important symptoms associated with PD. Assessing patients' motor state monitoring step length helps to detect periods in which patients suffer lack of medication effect. OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the adaption of existing step length estimation methods based on accelerometer sensors to a new position on left lateral side of waist in 28...
