Department of Electronics Engineering, Ramrao Adik Institute of Technology, Nerul, Navi Mumbai.
Parkinson’s disease is a chronic neurodegenerative condition that demonstrate the progressive loss of the ability to correlate movements mainly occurs in the elderly. For the purpose of monitoring tremors in Parkinson’s disease, a system has to be designed and developed. For coordination of movements, people with Parkinson’s, deprive of a chemical called dopamine which behaves as the messenger between the brain parts and the nervous system .Detecting Parkinson’s disease is a very arduous task as there is no evidence currently present to do this. Therefore, the main intention of our work is the designing of a system for recognizing Parkinson’s disease at an initial stage. An Android application is being designed that allows the status of PD patients to be assessed based on the tests found on the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale approved by the Movement Disorders Society (MDS-UPDRS).
