Abstract:Abstract—Gait analysis is commonly done in gait laboratories, where several gait variables are estimated using measurement systems installed in the laboratory. The major drawback of these measurement systems is their restriction to the laboratory. This study shows the possibilities of an ambulatory measurement system: the forceshoe. The forceshoe consists of an orthopaedic sandal with force/moment sensors and inertial sensors attached to the heel and the forefoot. Ankle and foot dynamics as well as center of mass movement have been estimated. Moreover, the ambulatory system has been compared to a reference system consisting of an optical position measurement system and two force plates.
