Abstract

In this paper, we analyze various kinds of hand tremors in the time and frequency domain, that are induced by performing a set of hand actions. We collected the tremor data using a simple, wearable accelerometer from 15 healthy individuals that had varying levels of athleticism. The overall results presented here show that the physiologic tremors in range of 8-14 Hz are most noticeable under fatigue.
