Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder. The clinical assessment of the features of PD is typically performed by means of neurological examinations and simple motor tests; however, these two evaluations take into account the severity of motor symptoms only during the length of the recording, whereas the severity of tremor may vary very strongly during the day. In order to overcome these drawbacks, the “PD-Watch” has been developed! It performs continuous monitoring of parkinsonian symptoms, in order to support diagnosis and clinical evaluation of PD.
