This study investigated the feasibility of the uncontrolled manifold approach (UCM) to analyse gait data variability in relation to the control of the centre of mass (COM) in adults with and without neuropathology. The proposed method was applied to six able-bodied subjects to characterise mechanisms of normal postural control during stance phase. This(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical potential of an augmented-video-based-portable-system (AVPS). The AVPS included a walkway grid mat made of vinyl flooring, flat paper bull's eye markers, four photoswitches mounted on tripods, a light-indicator, a video camera, and a computer with ProTrainer System software. The AVPS output was(More)
The prevalence of osteoarthritis is increasing globally but current compliance with rehabilitation remains poor. This study explores whether wearable sensors can be used to provide objective measures of performance with a view to using them as motivators to aid compliance to osteoarthritis rehabilitation. More specifically, the use of a novel attachable(More)
