Evaluating balance, stability and gait symmetry of stroke patients using kinematic and dynamic gait lab data
It was concluded that symmetry, balance and stability are gait parameters closely related and the ReHabX Score is a more suitable medical method to evaluate balance, stability and gait symmetry.
A Step Towards Design and Validation of Portable, Cost-effective Device for Gait Characterization
A pair of cost-effective, portable and user-friendly Sensored Shoe that can offer quantification of one’s gait-related indices such as, stride length, step length, %stance, %swing and symmetry index is designed.
Does Lower-extremity Symmetry Matter for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury Risk in Male Rugby Union Athletes?
It is suggested that within the context of a youth-services agency such as this, where children are involved in any kind of social activity, the use of these devices is a good idea.
Reliability and validity of the inertial sensor-based Timed "Up and Go" test in individuals affected by stroke.
The reliability and validity of the iTUG using body-fixed inertial sensors in people affected by stroke and the future application of the inertial sensor-based iTUG test for the assessment of physical deficits poststroke in longitudinal study designs are warrant.

Asymmetric knee loading in advanced unilateral hip osteoarthritis.
Among patients with unilateral end-stage hip OA, the contralateral knee is subjected to higher dynamic joint loads than is the ipsilateral knee, and this asymmetric loading persists long after subjects have undergone successful THR.
Relationship between step length asymmetry and walking performance in subjects with chronic hemiparesis.
Should trunk movement or footfall parameters quantify gait asymmetry in chronic stroke patients?
