Gait analysis systems are monitoring systems that establish a symbiosis relationship with Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) environments. Human locomotion analysis has a very important role always aiming at improving the quality of life both for individuals needing treatment or rehabilitation, as well as for healthy and elderly people. In fact, a deep and detailed knowledge about gait characteristics at a given time, and not least, monitoring and evaluating over time, will allow early diagnosis of… CONTINUE READING
