Spatio-temporal parameters of gait measured by an ambulatory system using miniature gyroscopes.
In this study we describe an ambulatory system for estimation of spatio-temporal parameters during long periods of walking. This original method based on wavelet analysis is proposed to compute theExpand

Ambulatory system for human motion analysis using a kinematic sensor: monitoring of daily physical activity in the elderly
A new method of physical activity monitoring is presented, which is able to detect body postures (sifting, standing, and lying) and periods of walking in elderly persons using only one kinematicExpand

Measurement of stand-sit and sit-stand transitions using a miniature gyroscope and its application in fall risk evaluation in the elderly
A new method of evaluating the characteristics of postural transition (PT) and their correlation with falling risk in elderly people is described. The time of sit-to-stand and stand-to-sitExpand

Relationships between dual-task related changes in stride velocity and stride time variability in healthy older adults.
Dual-task related gait changes have been previously reported for healthy older adults, suggesting that gait control requires attention. Compared to balance control, the involvement of attention inExpand

Distance to achieve steady state walking speed in frail elderly persons.
This study aims to determine the length of the gait initiation phase before achieving steady state walking in frail older people. Based on body fixed sensors, habitual walking was analysed in 116Expand

The Impact of Mild Cognitive Impairment on Gait and Balance: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Studies Using Instrumented Assessment
Background: In addition to cognitive deficits, people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) can experience motor dysfunction, including deficits in gait and balance. Objective, instrumented motorExpand

Evaluation of an ambulatory system for gait analysis in hip osteoarthritis and after total hip replacement.
Spatial and temporal parameters of gait have clinical relevance in the assessment of motor pathologies, particularly in orthopaedics. A new gait analysis system is proposed which consists of (a) anExpand

A new ambulatory system for comparative evaluation of the three-dimensional knee kinematics, applied to anterior cruciate ligament injuries
The aim of this study was to develop an ambulatory system for the three-dimensional (3D) knee kinematics evaluation, which can be used outside a laboratory during long-term monitoring. In order toExpand
