Clinical validation: a cohort study using Physilog provides normative gait and foot clearance data based on 1400 elderly subjects

A recent article  by Dadashi et. al published in “Sensors” provides reference gait and foot clearance parameters based on more than 1400 able-bodied adults over the age of 65. Gait parameters were measured with Physilog sensors during 20m walking trials in the corridor at self-selected pace. “This unique dataset of more than 1,400 participants is…

UbiComp 2014 Best Paper Nominee

“Gait Analysis using shoe worn Inertial Sensors: how is Foot Clearance related to Walking Speed” was nominated as Best Paper at the ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing, in September 2014 in Seattle. “Using shoe-worn inertial sensors, we realized that variability of foot clearance metrics contribute to the main variability of gait…
