Prediction of Freezing of Gait in Parkinson’s from Physiological Wearables: An Exploratory Study
Freezing of gait (FoG) is a common and severe gait impairment among patients with advanced Parkinson’s disease. FoG is associated with falls and negatively impacts the patient’s quality of life. We analyzed wearable collected electrocardiography (ECG) and skin- conductance response (SCR) data from 11 subjects who experience FoG in daily-life, and found statistically significant changes in ECG and SCR data just before the FoG episodes, compared to normal walking.
