Mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI) are common in soldiers and athletes, and can affect many areas of a person’s daily life including gait . Current methods of measuring gait parameters involve expensive optical motion capture systems, time intensive setup, wires, complicated filtering techniques, and a laboratory setting. A wearable and wireless motion analysis system would allow gait analysis to be performed outside of a laboratory setting during activities of daily living, in a clinical setting or on a football field. The purpose of this study was to develop and verify an algorithm to calculate knee flexion during slow gait, particularly during terminal stance and pre-swing phases, using wireless wearable sensors.
