Abstract

The aim is to develop a system of measurement suitable for both experimental (during sports) and clinical use which could be operated simply and with minimal disturbance of gait in situations outside the biomechanics laboratory. The use of accelerometers for the measurement of human gait parameters has not been widely accepted in biomechanics. However, several bioengineers and biomechanics in sports are interested in this field. Such readily obtainable information provides an index by which patient progress along the continuum of functional impairment may be monitored. The measurement of acceleration with subsequent integration can estimate velocity and position with reduced noise as Ladin et al.,1989).
