In the current work, a system for the monitoring, assessment and management of patients with chronic movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease (PD) is presented. The so called PERFORM system consists of the patient and the healthcare center subsystem. PERFORM monitors patient's motion status in daily activities, using a set of light wearable sensors. Based on the analysis of the acquired signals, PERFORM assesses PD symptoms and their severity, integrates patient's demographic, clinical and history data and proposes treatment plans based on advanced data mining algorithms. In this work we present two main modules of PERFORM system, the tremor assessment module and the data miner module.
