Dataset Open



This dataset contains sensor data collected from patients suffering from depression. The dataset contains motor activity recordings of 23 unipolar and bipolar depressed patients and 32 healthy controls. For each patient we provide motor activity sensor data over several days of continuous measuring and also some demographic data. The severity of the patients' depressive state was labeled using ratings done by medical experts on the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS).
