Abstract

In this paper we report about the development of a compact monitoring system for people affected by neurodegenerative diseases as Parkinson and Alzheimer. The electronic interface is based on a Linkit ONE development board, and it is equipped with an array of up to four ADXL345 accelerometers. By considering the main symptoms of Parkinson subjects, it is possible to monitor tremors/movements and accidental falls of people wearing the system and to send data to a supervisor by Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GSM connections. Furthermore, the geo-tagging functions, developed by means of a GPS feature, already equipped in the board, allow the monitoring of the movements and the position of Alzheimer subjects, avoiding the lost for memory failures.
