Taha’s research explores computerized measurements for diagnosing symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and includes exploring the methods aimed at measuring speech and bodily functions of patients affected by Parkinson’s disease, a promising and important research issue. The focus is on developing signal processing algorithms for Hypokinetic Dysarthria (Speech Disorder due to Parkinson’s disease) assessment. This work is further extended to assess Parkinsonian Gait and Finger Tapping test analysis, which requires extensive work and knowledge of Image Processing and Computer Vision.
