Developing Real Time Automatic Step Detection in the three dimensional Accelerometer Signal implemented on a Microcontroller System
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years))Student thesis
Parkinson’s disease is associated with reduced coordination between respiration and locomotion. For the neurological rehabilitation research, it requires a long-time monitoring system, which enables the online analysis of the patient’s vegetative locomotor coordination. In this work a real time step detector using three-dimensional accelerometer signal for the patients with Parkinson‘s disease is developed. This step detector is a complement for a recently developed system included of intelligent, wirelessly communicating sensors. The system helps to focus on the scientific questions whether this coordination may serve as a measure for the rehabilitation progress of PD patients.
