Gait Analysis from a Single Ear-Worn Sensor: Reliability and Clinical Evaluation for Orthopaedic Patients
Objective assessment of detailed gait patterns after orthopaedic surgery is important for post-surgical follow-up and rehabilitation. The purpose of this paper is to assess the use of a single ear-worn sensor for clinical gait analysis.
Toward Pervasive Gait Analysis With Wearable Sensors: A Systematic Review
This paper provides a systematic review of current techniques for quantitative gait analysis and proposes key metrics for for qualifying gait features extracted from wearable sensors. It aims to highlight key advances in this rapidly evolving research field and outline potential future directions for both research and clinical applications
From Wearable Sensors to Smart Implants – Toward Pervasive and Personalized Healthcare
The developments in wearable sensing technology are categorised into three main application areas that are defined by their scope and technological innovation. Relevant advances that mark the boundaries between these generations are technologies enabling continuous monitoring and, recently, smart implants. Emphasis is made that this evolution is driven by the need for prevention, early detection, and minimally invasive management of diseases. In addition, these advances have yielded the creation of a new potential source of Big Data.
