Abstract

A lifespace assessment comprising of metrics and clustering algorithms is applied to a GPS data-set released by the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Seven participants of the study who had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease of various levels carried a smart-phone which recorded GPS data every second. Metrics indicated a relationship between lifespace measured using GPS and the severity of symptoms due to Parkinson's disease. This assessment has potential future application in clinical monitoring of symptom severity and treatment efficacy, and in broadly monitoring population time use and community mobility/transportation.
