Abstract To see if a device can be created to help neutralize the resting tremors and freezing of gait in Parkinson's patients while collecting the data and storing it for their health professionals using the smartphone. The project was to see if those symptoms could be reduced by using the vibration motors and coding them to vibrate in different patterns, as distracting the patient's brain would help them perform daily tasks with ease.
