Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The availability of multifunctional sensors in combination with small, high capacity power sources in recent years have made it possible for the development of wearable sensor systems. Wearable sensors are small electronic devices placed on the human body to measure various kinds of Data such as acceleration, angular velocity, magnetic fields, EMG, sound etc. Due to their low-cost and convenient manner for measuring data, wearable sensor systems have been attracting attention as a diagnostic or monitoring tool for gait. Wearable gait sensors have the advantage of being able to measure gait for long periods of time and taking measurements outside the clinical office, such as inside the home for health monitoring during daily activities. This will be useful for populations facing an ageing society. Wearable gait sensors may provide information of changes in the body of related to aging, thus making it possible for early diagnosis of patients by clinicians. Though much work has been reported using wearable sensors for gait analysis and health monitoring, the interpretation of the collected data is difficult and this field of research is still a work in progress.

This special issue will address recent technological advancements on wearable sensors intended for gait related applications. We invite review articles and original research papers aimed at proposing new kinds of wearable gait sensor systems, new methods for sensor signal processing, reports on its clinical applications such as health monitoring, rehabilitation and gait analysis.
