Strokes are a constant concern for people and pose a major health concern. Tests that allow detection and the rehabilitation of patients have started to become more important and essential. There are several tests used by physiotherapists to speed up the recovery process of patients. This article presents a systematic review of existing studies using the Heel-Rise Test and sensors (i.e., accelerometers, gyroscopes, pressure and tilt sensors) to estimate the different levels and health statuses of individuals. It was found that the most measured parameter was related to the number of repetitions, and the maximum number of repetitions for a healthy adult is 25 repetitions. As for future work, the implementation of these methods with a simple mobile device will facilitate the different measurements on this subject. View Full-Text
