<b>Introduction</b>: Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an important therapeutic option for various neurological diseases. For certain indications the optimal target cannot be identified on structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), but can be visualized with tractography. A recent improvement for clinical practice is the probabilistic...

People who suffer from tremor, experience uncontrollable, involuntary movements. Depending on the underlaying cause, these movements occur during rest, or simultaneous with voluntary movements. <br/>STIL is a YES!Delft based, med-tech startup that is developing a non-invasive, anti-tremor orthosis that helps people with tremors in their upper...

This report presents an explorative study in finding solutions for finger tremor patients diagnosed with Essential Tremor (ET). Tremors restrict patients from performing delicate movements, creating difficulty in daily activities, such as drinking, writing, cooking or eating. Besides the challenges in performing tasks, social anxiety often...

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is characterized by sensory and motor deficits. Tremor is a frequent and severe symptom in patients suffering from CIDP. There is limited and contradictory data regarding the effect of tremor on treatment of the underlying polyneuropathy, and on treatment specifically aimed at neuropathic...

Tremor is thought to be an effect of oscillatory activity within the sensorimotor network. To date, the underlying pathological brain networks are not fully understood. Disentangling tremor activity from voluntary motor output and sensorimotor feedback systems is challenging. To better understand the intrinsic sensorimotor fingerprint...

Parkinson’s Disease (PD), Essential tremor (ET), and dystonia are movement disorders often misdiagnosed as one another and commonly present tremor as one of their motor symptoms. Rates of misdiagnosis between 30 and 50% of ET patients have been reported, where dystonia and PD are the most common missed diagnoses. Additionally, up to 50% of...

Objective: A role of the motor cortex in tremor generation in essential tremor (ET) is assumed, yet the directionality of corticomuscular coupling is unknown. Our aim is to clarify the role of the motor cortex. To this end we also study ‘familial cortical myoclonic tremor with epilepsy’ (FCMTE) and slow repetitive voluntary movements with a...

Background: Parkinson's disease (PD) and essential tremor (ET) are neurodegenerative diseases characterized by movement deficits. Especially in PD, maintaining cyclic movement can be significantly disturbed due to pathological changes in the basal ganglia and the cerebellum. Providing external cues improves timing of these movements in PD and...

van der Kort, Hugo (author)
Pathological tremor is currently not adequately treated with medication; it is effective in only 50% of cases and often does not supress tremor more than 60% at the cost of mild to severe side effects. In recent years, mechanical tremor suppression concepts have been developed, but none have thus far been implemented as replacements for current...

This report presents a design proposal for a product that will suppress the tremor of patients diagnosed with Essential Tremor (ET). People suffering from ET are restricted in their ability to function in everyday life, due to a constraint of performing delicate movements. Simple tasks, such as drinking and eating are a great challenge for...

Background: The basal ganglia and cerebellum are brain structures involved in movement initiation, execution and termination. They are thought to be involved in the tremor generation and movement deficits in Parkinson's disease (PD) and essential tremor (ET). Especially in PD, maintaining cyclic movement, such as walking or tapping can be...

No conclusive evidence has been presented to date for tectonic tremor (TT) in the vicinity of central Chile, where the Nazca Plate is subducting beneath the South American Plate. Subduction in our experimental location (roughly 35.5° S, 70.5° W) is steep and fairly unobstructed compared to the flattened and more seismogenic behavior to the north...

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...

We focus on the problem of estimating human hand-tremor frequency from input RGB video data. Estimating tremors from video is important for non-invasive monitoring, analyzing and diagnosing patients suffering from motor-disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. We consider two approaches for hand-tremor frequency estimation: (a) a Lagrangian...
