Self-organising artificial neural networks were used to reduce the complexity of joint kinematic and kinetic data, which form part of a typical instrumented gait assessment. Three-dimensional joint angles, moments and powers during the gait cycle were projected from the multi-dimensional data space onto a topological neural map, which thereby identified gait stem-patterns. Patients were positioned on the map in relation to each other and this enabled them to be compared from their gait patterns… CONTINUE READING
