Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Movement analysis is a key component of clinical diagnosis, treatment prescription and follow up of gait disorders. Instrumented 3D gait analysis is often financially and technically inaccessible in clinical environments. Other established methods of gait analysis include video and visual observation scores; however these techniques rely on subjective clinical expertise and can be very time consuming. Many patient groups could benefit from more widely available methods of automated objective gait analysis. The aim of this study is to compare a bespoke video based 2D motion analysis system (VOHM) to the 3D gold-standard.
