Brief Summary:
The investigators hypothesize that mathematical algorithm can identify freezing episodes based on data obtained from accelerometer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Parkinson's Disease Device: Auditory cue

Detailed Description:
The subjects will walk with an accelerometer. The acceleration traces will be online analyzed, and if freezing episode is recognized, an auditory cue will be heard.

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 30 participants
Observational Model: Case Control
Official Title: Online Automatic Recognition of Freezing of Gait Episodes
Study Start Date : October 2008
Estimated Primary Completion Date : October 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date : October 2009
