CareGum Applications (IMAGE) Technical University of Denmark Caption Motion plays an important role in our daily lives. It gives us the freedom to move and exercise and can increase our quality of life through fulfilling activities such as sports, music, and virtual gaming. However, motion detection is also important in health care. Indeed, patients undergoing rehabilitation need to perform strenuous exercises for a fast recovery. Wireless transmission of motion during such exercises can better help the physician and patient to optimize the exercises for an even faster recovery process. Finally, motion detection is important in the diagnostic and monitoring of various tremor-based diseases such as Parkinson's disease and for monitoring the well-being of the elderly, something intimately linked with their physical activity.
