Extracting Gait Spatiotemporal Properties from Parkinson's Disease Patients

Extracting Gait Spatiotemporal Properties from Parkinson's Disease Patients

This video was recorded at 23rd Annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS), Vancouver 2009. The Parkinson's disease (PD) is a frequent chronic progressive syndrome in the elderly population. Current available PD treatments either stimulate brain dopamine receptors or increase dopamine synthesis. In the long-term, especially from the fifth year of disease on, onset of motor complications is often observed. Such motor complications arise as a consequence of a reduction in the duration of the effect of the medication. This motor complications affects spatiotemporal properties during the gait of patients [8]. Length and speed of the steps change due to the effects known as dyskinesia and or akinesia, thus, and on-line measurement of these properties during gait may help... Show More
