About the talk

Freezing of gait is a common clinical symptom in advanced Parkinson’s Disease and described by patients as a feeling of being glued to the floor. Frequent freezing episodes with associated physical and psycho-social consequences (e.g. a bone fracture, a head injury, and fear of falling) has a huge impact on patients’ life quality. Therefore, a real-time accurate monitoring system is desirable to help patients overcome freezing episodes.

In this webinar, we will present the characteristics of freezing episodes using multi-modal physiological signals for eye movements, brain, heart, motion, and gait activity, and remark the modalities strongly associated with freezing episodes. In addition, we will discuss the performances of a freezing monitoring system using multi-modal physiological signals.

About the speaker

Ying Wang, MSc. is a PhD student of Donders Institute, Radboud University, Eindhoven University of Technology, and Kempenhaeghe Research Center in the Netherlands. Her current project, “BrainWave”, aims at 24/7 seizure detection in Epilepsy and freezing of gait detection and prediction in Parkinson’s disease using physiological signal analysis.
