BACKGROUND We studied human locomotor adaptation to powered ankle-foot orthoses with the intent of identifying differences between two different orthosis control methods. The first orthosis control method used a footswitch to provide bang-bang control (a kinematic control) and the second orthosis control method used a proportional myoelectric signal from(More)
We utilize an array of wireless inertial measurement units (IMUs) to measure the movements of subjects (n=30) traversing an outdoor balance beam (zigzag and sloping) as quickly as possible both with and without load (20.5kg). Our objectives are: (1) to use IMU array data to calculate metrics that quantify performance (speed and stability) and (2) to(More)
An array of inertial measurement units (IMUS) was experimentally employed to analyze warfighter performance on a target acquisition task pre/post fatigue. Eleven participants (5M/6F) repeated an exercise circuit carrying 20 kg of equipment until fatigued. IMUs secured to the sacrum, sternum, and a rifle quantified peak angular velocity magnitude (PAVM) and(More)
We present a novel method for quantifying femoral orientation angles using a thigh-mounted inertial measurement unit (IMU). The IMU-derived femoral orientation angles reproduce gold-standard motion capture angles to within mean (standard deviation) differences of 0.1 (1.1) degrees on cadaveric specimens during clinical procedures used for the diagnosis of(More)
