Abstract

Neuromuscular conditions are characterized by muscular weakness, for which the subjective clinical phenotype is normally characterized by means of neurological examination. However, this assessment is dramatically affected by inter-observer variability, possibly impacting on the patients' diagnosis. To help solving this issue, an interoperable HW/SW solution was implemented and preliminarily tested in a clinical setting, representing a useful tool for collecting data in a safe, secure and reliable way, and providing the clinician with a valid tool for objectivizing the parameters acquired during the neurological exam. Thanks to the data elaboration part, the solution can undoubtedly represent a valid tool to support the diagnostic path and can potentially be applied to several conditions, not only in the neuromuscular domain but also in the whole neurological field.
