Abstract

The world population is ageing. In the aged society, grasping the body condition of the elderly is helpful to choose appropriate rehabilitation. This research focuses on the outdoor walking analysis by use of the simple foot mounted IMU system. The walking feature values are estimated by the algorithm, and they are combined with the GPS data obtained by smartphone to compare the feature values of frail elderly and healthy subject. The differences of walking feature values that are calculated by this system show the usefulness of developed system. The developed system is simple, but useful to grasp the gait features changing of the user.
