We propose a unique device-independent approach to analyze long-term actigraphy signals that can accurately quantify the severity of periodic limb movements in sleep (PLMS).

Periodic limb movements (PLMs) may occur as a primary condition or be associated with other pathologies, such as sleep disorders. However, PLMs have not been described in comatose patients. We report ...
Periodic limb movements in sleep (PLMS) are frequent motor phenomena; however, population-based data are scarce. We assessed the prevalence of PLMS and factors associated with PLMS within two German p...
A limb's initial position is often biased to the right of the midline during activities of daily living. Given this specific initial limb position, visual cues of the limb become first available to th...
Goal-directed movements of a limb are optimized by sensorimotor integration, a process that merges both sensory and motor representations. In a previous study, we revealed that abnormal sensory repres...
Modulation of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) activity is essential to the progression of limb development in the mouse embryo. Genetic disruption of BMP signaling at various stages of limb developme...
Periodic leg movements during sleep is associated with microarousals and a stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. The knowledge of this autonomic activation may help understanding ...
The study examines and illustrates the utility of utilizing actigraphic measurements to assess treatment response.
The study aimed to study the correlation between periodic limb movement occurring during sleep and the different parameters of genetic generalized epilepsy
Critical limb ischaemia (CLI) is the most serious stage of peripheral occlusive arterial disease (POAD). Despite progress in the revascularization procedures, half these patients experienc...
Emerging evidence suggests that sleep-related disturbances such as sleep-disordered breathing (e.g. sleep apnea), sleep fragmentation, abnormal sleep architecture, and periodic limb moveme...
Incoordination of voluntary movements that occur as a manifestation of CEREBELLAR DISEASES. Characteristic features include a tendency for limb movements to overshoot or undershoot a target (dysmetria), a tremor that occurs during attempted movements (intention TREMOR), impaired force and rhythm of diadochokinesis (rapidly alternating movements), and GAIT ATAXIA.

Excessive periodic leg movements during sleep that cause micro-arousals and interfere with the maintenance of sleep. This condition induces a state of relative sleep deprivation which manifests as excessive daytime hypersomnolence. The movements are characterized by repetitive contractions of the tibialis anterior muscle, extension of the toe, and intermittent flexion of the hip, knee and ankle. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p387)
Severe distortions in the development of many basic psychological functions that are not normal for any stage in development. These distortions are manifested in sustained social impairment, speech abnormalities, and peculiar motor movements.
Distinct regions of mesenchymal outgrowth at both flanks of an embryo during the SOMITE period. Limb buds, covered by ECTODERM, give rise to forelimb, hindlimb, and eventual functional limb structures. Limb bud cultures are used to study CELL DIFFERENTIATION; ORGANOGENESIS; and MORPHOGENESIS.
Technique of graphic representation of the movements of the body imparted by the ballistic forces (recoil and impact) associated with cardiac contraction and ejection of blood and with the deceleration of blood flow through the large blood vessels. These movements, quantitatively very minute, are translated by a pickup device (transducer) into an electrical potential which is suitably amplified and recorded on a conventional electrocardiograph or other recording machine.
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
