In this paper we present preliminary results about on-line drawings acquired by means of a digitizing tablet, and performed by control population (left and right hand) as well as pathological subjects using their dominant hand. Experimental results reveal a clear difference between both groups, specially on the on-air movements. Although the acquired samples are not enough to extract significant conclusions we think that this preliminary results encourage the experimentation in this research line. Thus, the main purpose of this paper is to attract the attention of the scientific community.

The use of biometrics has been successfully applied to security applications for some time. However, the extension of other potential applications with the use of biometric information is a very recent development. This paper summarizes the field of biometrics and investigates the potential of utilizing biometrics beyond the presently limited field of security applications. There are some synergies that can be established within security-related applications. These can also be relevant in other fields such as health and ambient intelligence. This paper describes these synergies. Overall, this paper highlights some interesting and exciting research areas as well as possible synergies between different applications using biometric information. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
