Abstract
Identification of activities of daily living is essent ial in order to evaluate the quality of life both in the elderly and patients with mobility problems. Posture transitions (PT) are one of the most mechanically demanding activities in daily life and, thus, they can lead to falls in patients with mobility problems. This paper deals with PT recognitio n in Parkinson’s Disease (PD) patients by means of a triaxial accelerometer situated between the anterior and the left lateral part of the wai...
