Abstract

One of the cardinal symptoms of Parkinson’s disease is rest tremor. While rest tremor generally disappears during sleep and voluntary movement, action tremor may be triggered by voluntary movement, and may even be more disabling than rest tremor. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) in the subthalamic nucleus (STN) has been shown to be efficacious in the treatment of tremor. However, in most studies tremor is quantified using clinical scales such as the Unified Parkinson Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS). In this paper a pilot study is described in which the effect of DBS on rest and action tremor was investigated using inertial sensors for the quantification of tremor.
