The goal of this project is to develop wireless sensors and analysis methods to monitor patients with various motor dysfunctions. We are currently targeting two specific applications: facilitating medication titration in patients with Parkinson's disease and assessing motor recovery in stroke survivors undergoing rehabilitation. In our vision, the treatment and rehabilitation hospital of the future will allow clinicians to continuously monitor motor activity in patients via miniature sensor technology in order to better design interventions on an individual basis. Two key points toward developing the tools necessary to achieve continuous monitoring of motor function are (1) development of a robust and deployable wearable wireless network of sensors and (2) the development of analysis techniques to derive clinically relevant information from miniature sensor data.
