Medical and technical specifications survey

REMPARK is a European Union funded project that will develop a wearable monitoring system to identify in real time the motor status of people with Parkinson's (PwPs), and will evaluate ON/OFF/dyskinesia status and freezing of gait while walking during daily activities.

The aim is to develop a gait guidance system that will help PwPs in real time carry out their daily activities.

The system will incorporate a number of sensors including a device the size of a mobile phone, fitted at the waist. These will detect the changes in the wearers movements and will determine if they are ON/OFF/dyskinetic or frozen. The device will then carry out an action that will correct the change.

The REMPARK team would be very grateful for your help in completing this survey to determine what are the major mobility issues you may have, and to identify the strategies to improve gait difficulties.
