Abstract
Inertial measurement units (IMUs) are devices used, among other fields, in health applications, since they are light, small and effective. More concretely, IMUs have demonstrated to accurately monitor motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD). In this sense, most of previous works have attempted to assess PD symptoms through IMUs in controlled environments or short tests. This paper presents the design of an IMU called 9x3 that aims to assess PD symptoms, enabling the possibility to perform a...
