Gait assessment in Parkinson's disease: toward an ambulatory system for long-term monitoring
An ambulatory gait analysis method using body-attached gyroscopes to estimate spatio-temporal parameters of gait has been proposed and validated against a reference system for normal and pathologic gait. Expand

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 kinematic sensor attached to the chest. Expand
