Wearables for gait and balance assessment in the neurological ward - study...

Deficits in gait and balance are common among neurological inpatients. Currently, assessment of these patients is mainly subjective. New assessment options using wearables may provide complementary and more objective information. In this prospective cross-sectional feasibility study performed over...

Validation of a Lower Back “Wearable”-Based Sit-to-Stand and Stand-to-Sit...

Introduction: Impaired sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit movements (postural transitions, PTs) in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and older adults (OA) are associated with risk of falling and reduced quality of life. Inertial measurement units (IMUs, also called “wearables”) are powerful tools...

Arm swing asymmetry in overground walking.

Treadmill experiments suggest that left-dominant arm swing is common in healthy walking adults and is modulated by cognitive dual-tasking. Little is known about arm swing asymmetry in overground walking. We report directional (dASI) and non-directional arm swing symmetry indices (ndASI) from 334 adults...

Serum Inflammatory Profile for the Discrimination of Clinical Subtypes...

Background: Blood levels of immune markers have been proposed to discriminate patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) from controls. However, differences between clinical PD subgroups regarding these markers still need to be identified. Objective: To investigate whether clinical phenotypes can be predicted...

Validation of a Step Detection Algorithm during Straight Walking and Turning...

INTRODUCTION Inertial measurement units (IMUs) positioned on various body locations allow detailed gait analysis even under unconstrained conditions. From a medical perspective, the assessment of vulnerable populations is of particular relevance, especially in the daily-life environment. Gait analysis...
