Title
Verification of the functionality of device for monitoring human tremor
Abstract

Tremor accompanying the Parkinson's disease is perceived as one of its most disturbing symptoms. Among available treatments there is a deep brain stimulation, which effectively reduces unwanted oscillations of patient's muscles. Nevertheless, setting parameters of the stimulation is a highly empirical process and the final outcome depends primarily on the experience of involved medical personnel. We present a device which is meant to provide a clinician with feedback based on the measurable parameters of tremor, monitored in many points of the body simultaneously. Functionality of the device was verified at a basic level. During the verification, the vibrations were recorded: (1) in a relaxed arm, (2) during voluntary contraction of muscles and (3) after being damped by tissues (in this case the vibrations were introduced from an external generator). Moreover, a method of selecting optimal place for mounting vibration probes is presented.
