Study and evaluation of the adaptation walker-disease for the user

This project is based on the study and evaluation of the adaptation of the walker to the user’s disease. Thus, the goals are:
-       Validation of the walker as an instrument of functional compensation;
-       Collection of clinical evidences that lead to the use of the walker, by compiling the evidences that allowed the prescription of the walker;
-       Propose a new classification of gait patterns with the walker, by  categorizing the gait that the user shows when walking with a walker;
-       Study the signals acquired from sensors integrated in the walker - infrared and force sensors - and sensors placed on the user– inertial sensors to assess the postural behaviour of the subject and infer some clinical knowledge.
