Description

The prime method of analyzing gait cycles with balance aiding devices has been typically restricted to laboratory controlled environments, where motion capture software or visual observation are available. Few methods for real-world gait analysis exist that do not require active human monitoring. We are bridging that gap by developing an autonomous device which attaches to a cane, or cane like device, to record gait speed, frequency, and applied load. To date we have successfully verified the canes accuracy and are collecting experimental data.
