    A method of measuring and analysing intention tremor using a linear accelerometer is described. Reasons are given for measuring this particular parameter of the tremor, for using this specific energy conversion device, and for employing the particular form of analysis. A comparison of the numerical values obtained for the amount of tremor activity, compared with a corresponding clinical grading, is made for 30 patients with intention tremor due to a variety of pathological causes. It is shown that the method gives clear correlation with the clinical assessments, although certain discrepancies are noted, and their importance discussed.
