A Unified Data Architecture for Assessing Motor Symptoms in Parkinson's Disease


INTRODUCTION: The diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson's disease depend on the assessment of motor symptoms. Wearables and machine learning algorithms have emerged to collect large amounts of data and potentially support clinicians in clinical and ambulant settings.

STATE OF THE ART: However, a systematical and reusable data architecture for storage, processing, and analysis of inertial sensor data is not available. Consequently, datasets vary significantly between studies and prevent comparability.

CONCEPT: To simplify research on the neurodegenerative disorder, we propose an efficient and real-time-optimized architecture compatible with HL7 FHIR backed by a relational database schema.

LESSONS LEARNED: We can verify the adequate performance of the system on an experimental benchmark and in a clinical experiment. However, existing standards need to be further optimized to be fully sufficient for data with high temporal resolution.
