This paper proposes a novel system for pathological tremor study and diagnosis. The system described called TCA (tremor coherence analyzer) is based on a electronic device developed for wireless monitoring of physiological variables. The device uses Bluetooth technology to communicate. The proposed technique for pathological tremor analysis uses surface EMG signals. The EMG sensors are located on forearm muscles to measure muscular activity due to pathological tremor. The coherence function between these signals is calculated. The application of the coherence function allows to determine linear dependencies between two signals.
