Tremor Analysis

The high frequency acquisition of movement enables SOMNOwatch™ plus to make a very accurate frequency analysis using FFT. The recording of tremor intensity and tremor frequency can be achieved over a long period of time. This parameter can be used for the medical diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease.

Automatic Analysis-Software

  • Programmable, delayed autostart
  • Spectral Analysis to detect tremor
  • Easy determination of Frequency and Intensity in the Tremor Spectrum
  • Fast results output in tabular or graphic format
  • Export to Mircrosoft EXCEL
