Abstract

In this paper, we estimate the effect of fatigue on physiological tremors in adults suffering from diabetes. We used a simple, wearable accelerometer to collect the acceleration data from 5 diabetic subjects with varying physical activity levels. Fatigue was induced via an intermittent submaximal isometric handgrip protocol, normalized for individual grip strength, until voluntary exhaustion. The overall results presented here show that the physiologic tremors in the range of 10-14 Hz are most noticeable under fatigue.
