Continuation of P18043. In the US, roughly 7 million individuals suffer from some form of a tremor with over 200,000 suffering from essential tremors. An essential tremor is an involuntary rhythmic muscle movement often affecting the arms and hands of individuals. As a result, patients’ fine motor abilities are impacted causing difficulty in performing daily tasks. Currently, large research potential exists in accurately collecting real data representation of essential tremors. However, devices that reliably collect real time tremor motion and muscle activation data while correlating the two do not readily exist. The goal of the project is to provide a data collection system that can be worn and used by patients with various levels of essential tremors. The expected system should collect the appropriate real-time motion data and the EMG data from the muscles involved with wrist flexion/extension, wrist pronation/supination, and radial/ulnar deviation. In addition, appropriate filtering and processing will be required to obtain usable outputs from the noisy data. The data collected with this system will be used by other MSD teams working on essential tremor mitigation projects. This project will leverage the work on the prior project P18043 to improve data acquisition capabilities and robust operation.
