I’m working on a Tremor Tracking project for the “Keating Memorial Self Research” activity in Open Humans. I’ve had this project going since last year, with many stops and starts, and I’m hoping to make some good progress in the next weeks and months. It would be great to have some companionship in exploring this specific topic. Essential tremor is one of the most common neurological conditions among adults. A common way to see your tremor is to balance a sheet of paper on your open palm, and see if it is clearly shaking. A more quantitative measurement can be obtained using the accelerometer on your phone and some analysis available in Open Humans. (You can see from the screen grab below that my tremor frequency is between 7-8 Hz.)
I don’t want to get into too much crazy detail here yet, since my goal is just to describe my topic and see if I can inspire others to join me. There is a personal tremor tracking log going back to June 2019 posted already on the QS Forum. I’ll be starting fresh here, but making use of what I’ve learned already and glad to support others who want to join.
