Conference paper


The development of new treatment strategies for tremor requires an objective and reproducible method for tremor quantification. Subjective rating, even using standardized scores, very often leads to contradictory results between patients and physicians. Objective methods have so far usually only been performed during short periods and therefore have not taken the high variability of tremor into account.
