In this paper we describe a wireless wearable system to monitor gait, based on a customized pair of commercial insoles able to collect ground reaction forces by use of 24 embedded cells for each foot. Each insole was combined with a small form factor, low-power Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and enabled to communicate via Bluetooth with a base station. We(More)
I. INTRODUCTION In recent years, principles of pervasive solutions and tailored interventions for healthcare are gaining significant relevance, both in the scientific and in the care-providers and clinical community, with a potential, significant impact on the society and the healthcare systems. This new approach has been primarily possible thanks to the(More)
Daily life activities such as working and shopping may cause people to carry overloaded bags, frequently borne in an incorrect way (e.g. only on one shoulder, asymmetrically worn). When these activities alter the gait, back pain incidents can occur. Critical conditions can be monitored taking advantage from a wearable assistant, extracting contextual(More)
— Wireless Body-area Sensor Networks (WBSN) are a key component of e-Health solutions. Many different physiological parameters can be monitored and collected continuously by wearable wireless sensors with high accuracy, low power consumption and limited cost. In this work we focus on WBSN for real-time biofeedback applications. In this domain the real-time(More)
AIMS. The study presents a system for rehabilitation of balance control that integrates the most recent technology advances with the last findings about motor control and rehabilitation-engineering. The system design, based on palmtop computer and body sensors networks, has a modular architecture, both hardware and software, to allow the expansion for a(More)
