This study performed a concurrent comparison of two walking speed estimation methods using shank- and foot-mounted inertial measurement units (IMUs). Based on the cyclic gait pattern of the stance leg during walking, data was segmented into a series of individual stride cycles. The angular velocity and linear accelerations of the shank and foot over each of(More)
With the increasing interest of using inertial measurement units (IMU) in human biomechanics studies, methods dealing with inertial sensor measurement errors become more and more important. Pre-test calibration and in-test error compensation are commonly used to minimize the sensor errors and improve the accuracy of the walking speed estimation results.(More)
Recent advances in the use of inertial measurement units (IMUs) for motion analysis suggest the possibility of using this technology for the monitoring of daily activities of individuals during rehabilitation post-stroke. Previous studies have utilized features extracted from accelerometer and gyroscope signals to develop classification models capable of(More)
This study validated the feasibility of inertial sensors in estimating lower limb joint kinematics during stair ambulation in healthy older adults and stroke survivors. Three dimensional motion data were collected using an inertial sensor-based system from 9 persons with stroke and 9 healthy older adults as they ascended and descended a staircase at a(More)
