In this study we introduce a wireless and portable system for gait analysis that was designed and preliminary validated. The system features two multi-sensor nodes, one for each foot. Each node can provide inertial information, by means of a 3D Inertial Measurement Unit (ADIS16350, with 3D accelerometer and gyroscope), positioned approximately at the level of the Achilles tendon, and pressure beneath the foot, by means of an insole with 24 pressure sensors placed on the most relevant foot-shoe contact region (Paromed). An external gateway acquires data at 83Hz from the two nodes and performs data storage for off-line processing.

Abstract

In this study we introduce a wireless and portable system for gait analysis that was designed and preliminary validated. The system features two multi-sensor nodes, one for each foot. Each node can provide inertial information, by means of a 3D Inertial Measurement Unit (ADIS16350, with 3D accelerometer and gyroscope), positioned approximately at the level of the Achilles tendon, and pressure beneath the foot, by means of an insole with 24 pressure sensors placed on the most relevant foot-shoe contact region (Paromed). An external gateway acquires data at 83Hz from the two nodes and performs data storage for off-line processing.
