Introduction: Movement disorders, such as Cerebral Palsy, prevent children from fully developing their motor coordination abilities reducing their quality of life. Trunk control is a core coordination competency but there is limited variety in sitting based therapies. This paper investigates a theorised trunk support device for children which...

Introduction: Video-based clinical rating plays an important role in assessing dystonia and monitoring the effect of treatment in dyskinetic cerebral palsy (CP). However, evaluation by clinicians is time-consuming, and the quality of rating is dependent on experience. The aim of the current study is to provide a proof-of-concept for a machine...

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is used to treat a variety of movement disorders. In current DBS therapy, the stimulation parameters are manually adjusted based on a subjective assessment of patient’s symptoms. State-of-the-art DBS research focuses on recording brain activity to create a patient-specific neuronal profile that correlates with the...

There is no objective gold standard to detect tremors. This concerns not only the choice of the algorithm and sensors, but methods are often designed to detect tremors in one specific group of patients during the performance of a specific task. Therefore, the aim of this study is twofold. First, an objective quantitative method to detect...

Progress in diagnosis and treatment of movement disorders after neurological diseases like stroke, cerebral palsy (CP), dystonia and at old age requires understanding of the altered capacity to adequately respond to physical obstacles in the environment. With posture and movement disorders, the control of muscles is hampered, resulting in...

Background Spastic paresis in cerebral palsy (CP) is characterized by increased joint stiffness that may be of neural origin, i.e. improper muscle activation caused by e.g. hyperreflexia or non-neural origin, i.e. altered tissue viscoelastic properties (clinically: “spasticity” vs. “contracture”). Differentiation between these components is hard...

Over 0.9% of the population suffers from a movement disorder. The pathophysiology of most movement disorders remains unknown, thereby impairing effective diagnosis and consequently effective treatment. Abnormal activity of the cerebellum (CBL) and basal ganglia (BG) has been implicated in many movement disorders, including Parkinsonian tremor...

Tremor, characterized by involuntary and rhythmical movements, is the most common movement disorder. Tremors can have peripheral and central oscillatory components which properly assessed and separated may improve diagnostics. An MR-safe haptic wrist manipulator enables simultaneous measurement of proprioceptive reflexes (peripheral components)...

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a disabling syndrome associated with sensory (e.g., burning pain, allodynia, hyperalgesia), autonomic (e.g., edema, skin color and temperature changes), and motor impairments (e.g., tremor, myoclonus, dystonia). Approximately 25% of the patients with CRPS develop fixed dystonia which is characterized by...
