iTrem

Robert Delano, Brian Parise, Leanne West

Abstract

iTrem is an iPhone application that uses the phone’s built-in accelerometers to collect frequency and amplitude data of hand tremor in people with Essential Tremor, Parkinson’s Disease, and other neurological conditions. iTrem makes it possible to take frequent tremor data samples from a subject and communicate it in real time to a doctor or researcher independent of the subject’s location. Aggregating the tremor data collected by iTrem provides a way for patients, doctors and researchers to collaborate on a grand scale, possibly shedding light on new avenues of treatment and therapy.
