Activity recognition study

22 July 2020

Here we are testing how new wearables could predict symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. You don’t have to have Parkinson’s disease to take part

You will be asked to attach devices that track your movements. You will then be asked to simulate a parkinsonian gait whilst performing different activities such as walking, helping our systems recognize these behaviours in others.

Two-meter social distance will be maintained at all times with the experimenter. Face masks will be provided.


  • Age 18 - 75
  • Able to walk without impediment
