Automatic Recognition of Freezing of Gait Episodes
Online Automatic Recognition of Freezing of Gait Episodes
The investigators hypothesize that mathematical algorithm can identify freezing episodes based on data obtained from accelerometer.
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.
Observational
Observational Model: Case Control

Probability Sample
Patients with Parkinson's disease prone to freezing of gait
Parkinson's Disease
Device: Auditory cue
When device recognizes automatically freezing episode it will generate auditory cue
PD+FOG
