TRANSLATING MOVEMENT DATA IN PERFORMANCE OR DISABILITY METRICS USING BARCODE AND SIGNATURE
Keywords: inertial sensors, activity barcode, running performance, movement signature
AbstractThis paper present two recent collaborative developments for translating movement data into relevant information measuring objectively performance or disability. Using the signals from body-worn inertial units (Physilog®) combined with advanced data fusion algorithm, daily-life motor performance on one side and running performance on the other side were measured and analysed using new descriptive metrics referred as “Barcode” and “Signature”. The development and validation of those two applications in the case of Stroke patients and Amateur athletes are described, and their potential use in clinical and sports routine will be discussed.
