Locomotion monitoring using body sensor networks Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Research indicates that various disorders in aging ranging from mild cognitive impairment to dementia and Alzheimer's could be diagnosed early based on the study of locomotion. Sensor platforms integrated into clothing provide the possibility of reliable locomotion monitoring. In this work, we describe a system using inexpensive, off-the-shelf inertial sensors to analyze locomotion. We present our measurements for coordination and consistency and discuss the preliminary results of our efforts to establish a baseline for these measurements for normal adult locomotion.
