University of Twente – Kauw-A-Tjoe, R. and Thalen, J. and Marin-Perianu, M. and Havinga, P.J.M. (2007) SensorShoe: Mobile Gait Analysis for Parkinson’s Disease Patients. In: UbiComp 2007 Workshop Proceedings, 16 Sept 2007, Innsbruck, Austria.
We present the design and initial evaluation of a mobile gait analysis system, SensorShoe. The target user group is represented by Parkinson’s Disease patients, which need continuous assistance with the physical therapy in their home environment. SensorShoe analyses the gait by using a low-power sensor node equipped with movement sensors. In addition, SensorShoe gives real-time feedback and therapy assistance to the patient, and provides the caregivers an effective remote monitoring and control tool.
