Differential diagnosis of tremors are sometimes still challenging between Parkinson disease (PD) and essential tremor (ET) patients. We examined whether real-time recording and analysis with smartphones built-in accelerometers could provide differential cues useful for clinical evaluation. This simple method could be of benefit to neurologists in environments where more sophisticated diagnostic techniques are unavailable.
