The early onset of musculoskeletal injury during ambulation may be detectable due to changes in gait. Body worn accelerometers provide the ability for real-time monitoring and detection of these changes, thereby providing a means for avoiding further injury. We propose algorithms for extracting magnitude and pattern asymmetry features from accelerometers(More)
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited. ABSTRACT Gait asymmetry can be a useful indicator of a variety of medical and pathological conditions, including musculoskeletal injury (MSI), neurological damage associated with stroke or head trauma, and a variety of age-related disorders. Body-worn accelerometers provide the ability for real-time(More)
