Abstract [en]

Quantitative gait analysis is a powerful tool for the assessment of a number of physical and cognitive conditions. Unfortunately, the costs involved in providing in-lab 3D kinematic analysis to all patients is prohibitive. Inertial sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes may complement in-lab analysis by providing cheaper gait analysis systems that can be deployed anywhere. The present study investigates the use of inertial sensors to quantify gait symmetry and gait normality. The system was evaluated in-lab, against 3D kinematic measurements; and also in-situ, against clinical assessments of hip-replacement patients. Results show that the system not only correlates well with kinematic measurements but it also corroborates various quantitative and qualitative measures of recovery and health status of hip-replacement patients.
