The European population is becoming older and older, with the consequent increase of neurodegenerative diseases, which mainly affect elderly people. With the purpose of advancing in the search of treatment for this type of diseases, the doctors find it difficult to obtain information about the symptoms and their evolution, as well as find a lack of tools which help doing so. In this article a monitoring system of the motor status of patients affected by the type of diseases previously mentioned is presented, based on a series of sensors distributed all over the patientpsilas body, which send the collected information to a Personal Remote Monitoring Device that the patient takes with himself. This device is in charge of carrying out a preliminary processing of the data and sending these measures wirelessly, for their processing and study in a hospital. The work is being developed within the project PERFORM , financed by the European Commission and with the participation of diverse centers of the United Kingdom, Cyprus, Italy, Greece and Czech Republic.
