A tremor refers to involuntary, rhythmic muscle movements which involve   twitching or oscillatory movements of one or more parts of the body. Resting tremor occurs during rest which is a predominant feature of Parkinsonism. The subjective assessment is by theUnified Parkinson’s disease Rating Scale, a clinical standard scale for parkinsonism tremor assessment. Hence the sensor based tremor measuring device was used in the study for the prediction of tremors. OBJECTIVE: To detect the effectiveness of sensor analysis of resting tremor in Parkinsonism. METHODOLOGY: STUDY TYPE: Experimental; STUDY DURATION: four weeks; STUDY SETTING: SRM medical college and hospital.  PROCEDURE: 12 samples are taken. The resting tremors will analyse by using sensor-based device then, exercises for upper limb tremor is given for a period of four weeks then again after exercise, tremor will be analysed using a sensor based device to interpret the differences in the tremor after the therapy.  RESULT AND CONCLUSION: The study shows a significant correlation between pre test and post test values by using vibration sensor as aoutcome measure.
