Portable Gait Analyser

304









DEPARTMENT : Department of Physics

PRODUCER : Professor Jeffrey Cheung
PROJECT YEAR : 2016 - current
LENGTH : 3 min.
ACCESS : Open to all
SUMMARY : Portable Gait Analyser (GA) -diagnose the bio-mechanics of physical activities with unprecedented details. It is a simple and non-invasive technique.

GA is a method to assess the way we walk or run and to highlight our biomechanical abnormalities. Also, it is commonly used in sports biomechanics to help athletes running more efficiently and to identify posture-related or movement-related problems for the people with injuries.

Traditionally, it requires taking hundreds of pictures per second and using up to 15 cameras for analysis. In our invention, we simply put a single sensor behind a testee’s waist and require him to walk 20 steps. The data collected will be analysed using our algorithm in a computer. It is a non-invasive way to accurately and precisely determine the Legs Length Discrepancy (LLD) of a human being

Professor Cheung says, “Gait analysis is a systematic study of human motion. To put it simply, it is a method to assess the way we walk or run and to highlight biomechanical abnormalities. Also, it is commonly used in sports biomechanics to help athletes running more efficiently and to identify posture-related or movement-related problems for the people with injuries. Gait analysis is usually performed by professionals such as podiatrist, physiotherapist or trained staff member. The process is very complex. But our new portable Gait Analyser can easily measure the bio-mechanics of walking, running, and other physical activities with unprecedented detail.”
