Wearable Inertial Measurement Units for Assessing Gait in Real-World Environments


Renggli, David; Graf, Christina; Tachatos, Nikolaos; Singh, Navrag; Meboldt, Mirko; Taylor, William R; Stieglitz, Lennart; Schmid Daners, Marianne (2020). Wearable Inertial Measurement Units for Assessing Gait in Real-World Environments. Frontiers in Physiology, 11:90.

Abstract

Walking patterns can provide important indications of a person’s health status and be beneficial in the early diagnosis of individuals with a potential walking disorder. For appropriate gait analysis, it is critical that natural functional walking
characteristics are captured, rather than those experienced in artificial or observed settings. To better understand the extent to which setting influences gait patterns, and particularly whether observation plays a varying role on subjects of different ages, the current study investigates to what extent people walk differently
