Accelerometers have been widely used in wearable systems for gait analysis. Several gait cycle parameters are provided to quantify the level of gait regularity and symmetry. This study attempts to assess abnormal gaits of Parkinson disease (PD) patients based on the gait cycle parameters derived in real-time from an accelerometry-based wearable motion detector (WMD). The results of an experiment with 25 healthy young adults showed that there were significant differences between gait cycle… Expand
