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…

Real-Time Gait Cycle Parameter Recognition Using a Wearable Accelerometry System

This study can be extended to the future attempts in real-time detection of disabling gaits, such as festinating or freezing of gait in PD patients, as well as Ambulatory rehabilitation, gait assessment and personal telecare for people with gait disorders.

Assessing accelerometer based gait features to support gait analysis for people with complex regional pain syndrome

It is feasible to discriminate the patients with CRPS from the control subjects using a small set of gait features extracted from walking acceleration data recorded during the SPPB test.

Gait dynamics in Parkinson's disease: common and distinct behavior among stride length, gait variability, and fractal-like scaling.

This update highlights the idea that while stride length, gait variability, and fractal scaling of gait are all impaired in PD, distinct mechanisms likely contribute to and are responsible for the regulation of these disparate gait properties.

Walking stability using harmonic ratios in Parkinson's disease

It is concluded that HRs offer unique information beyond that of typical stride parameters, and stride time variability is most closely associated with these direct measures of global walking stability.
