Body-worn kinematic sensors have been widely proposed as the optimal solution for portable, low cost, ambulatory monitoring of gait. This study aims to evaluate an adaptive gyroscope-based algorithm for automated temporal gait analysis using body-worn wireless gyroscopes. Gyroscope data from nine healthy adult subjects performing four walks at four(More)
Development of a flexible wireless sensor platform for measurement of biomechanical and physiological variables related to functional movement would be a vital step towards effective ambulatory monitoring and early detection of risk factors in the ageing population. The small form factor, wirelessly enabled SHIMMER platform has been developed towards this(More)
A continuous wave near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) instrument for brain-computer interface (BCI) applications is presented. In the literature, experiments have been carried out on subjects with such motor degenerative diseases as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which have demonstrated the suitability of NIRS to access intentional functional activity, which(More)
Body-worn kinematic sensors have been widely proposed for use in portable, low cost, ambulatory monitoring of gait. Such sensor based systems could avoid the need for high-cost laboratory-based methods for measurement of gait. We aimed to evaluate an adaptive gyroscope-based algorithm for automated temporal gait analysis using body-worn wireless gyroscopes.(More)
Electrodermal responses in male subjects who gave at least four oral-dependent Rorschach responses (n = 15) or no more than two such responses (n = 19) were assessed both before and after the subjects had either a warm, friendly interaction or a cold, unfriendly interaction with a confederate. There were no group differences on initial baseline(More)
