Abstract

The number of elderly people is drastically increasing. To support them, the gait information is under the spotlight since it has the relationship between the fall risk and dementia. Among other scenarios, a relatively higher level of ability is needed for the stair walking as it requires balancing and loading. Conventionally, 3D motion capture devices have been used to acquire the parameters of stair walking. However, it is difficult to acquire daily parameters as the equipment needs complicated preparation and body-worn markers. In this study, we propose a system which can acquire daily stair walking parameters using only depth data obtained by Kinect v2 without restraining by markers. We confirmed the accuracy of our proposed system compared with a 3D motion capture system.
