[en] Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a multisystem disorder with a plethora of
symptoms affecting quality of life in the home environment. Due to the
rapid development of wearable technique in the health and fitness sector,
an increasing number of such wearables are available to complement
diagnostic strategies of PD symptoms not only in the clinical but also in the
domestic environment. This development has clear advantages over clinical
evaluation, as the latter is relatively subjective, time-consuming and
costly, and provides only a snapshot of the condition. First results about
the use of such technology for the assessment of PD symptoms (including
bradykinesia, dyskinesia, tremor, daily activity and sleep behavior) in the
domestic environment are promising. They suggest that these techniques
can provide complementary information about the symptoms of PD
patients, and have the potential to be included in future diagnostic workup
concepts of routine care in PD. The use of such technique provides also the
chance to more actively include patients into medical decision making
