Kinesia Home View Device
Kinesia HomeView is intended to monitor physical motion
and muscle activity to quantify kinematics of movement
Kinesia HomeView is a data acquisition system capable of
recording, analyzing, and displaying kinematic and diary
data from movement disorder patients
The purpose of this system is to provide clinicians with a
detailed report of motor symptom fluctuations and patient
diary information throughout the day.
Kinesia HomeView consists of three hardware
components: A) a tablet PC, B) a docking station, & C) a
The two software components are the patient application

(Parkinson’s Tremors & Epilepsy
The patient application is the primary interface that patients interact with while using Kinesia HomeView. This
application has three main features:
1) ‘my Symptoms’ allows the patient to choose from two options: various symptoms (i.e. tremor, rigidity, and slowed
movements) as well as various activities (i.e. getting dressed, sleeping, and walking)
Red and green ratings correspond to high and low impairment, respectively.
2) ‘my Meds’ contains a list of the patient medications the clinician is interested in evaluating. Patients can select
medication type and time of use.
3) ‘my Tests’ allows patients to perform a motor test session at any time or in order to make up a missed or cancelled test
