Abstract:This paper describes a system for measuring the temporal parameters of hemiplegic gait. This system uses shoe insoles with sensors, acting as switches, placed under the heel, head of the first metatarsal, head of the fifth metatarsal and the big toe. This system is able to monitor gait for up to 10 min and can be used by the patient over any surface. Parameters for evaluating hemiplegic gait are defined, including scuffing during swing and the degree of inversion during stance.
