ABSTRACT

TIn this paper, Hemiplegic patients have gait characteristics different from normal persons. This paper presents a posture measuring and display system reflecting their characteristics. Patients wear 3 sensor modules on thigh, calf and foot. To enhance measuring precision of eachsensor module, 3D accelerometer and 3D gyroscope are combined. Gait posture is displayed in 3Dby modeling thigh, calf and foot as connected 3D objects based on data of the sensor modules. Forconvenience in inspecting unusual gait posture of hemiplegic patients, any view angle of the 3Ddisplay can be selected. In addition, the current gait phase of RLA(Rancho Los Amigos) gait cycle is determined and displayed in real-time by utilizing the posture information, The phase sequenceand duration of each phase can be used in evaluating gait quality of patients.
