Abstract:
This research deals with the design and program- ming of devices for measuring automatically human motion using portable and low-cost technologies. The movements studied in this research are pronation/supination, flexion/extension and abduc- tion/adduction of the upper and lower limb, which are required for a number of activities of daily living. A home-made attitude and heading reference system based on inertial and magnetic sensor is presented. It was compared with a similar device available in the market, and with respect to a video-camera based system used as gold standard. An experimental platform was also built for controlling and replicating experiments. The results obtained by the proposed device are competitive and promising with a general performance comparable to a commercial device
