Foot Position Measurement during Assistive Motion for Sit-to-Stand Using a Single Inertial Sensor and Shoe-Type Force Sensors

Kodai Kitagawa, Ibai Gorordo Fernandez, Takayuki Nagasaki, Sota Nakano, Mitsumasa Hida, Shogo Okamatsu, Chikamune Wada
2021 International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health  
The present study proposes and evaluates a new method for the quantitative measurement of foot position during assistive motion for sit-to-stand using a few wearable sensors that are not limited to the  ...  sensor on the trunk and shoe-type force sensors.  ...  The specifications of the inertial sensor were as follows: full range of sensor output in acceleration, ±5 G; acceleration sensitivity, 191.4 mV/g; full range of sensor output in gyro, 1500 degrees per  ...

FALL DETECTION AND PREVENTION FOR THE ELDERLY: A REVIEW OF TRENDS AND CHALLENGES

Nashwa El-Bendary, Qing Tan, Frédérique C. Pivot, Anthony Lam
2013 International Journal on Smart Sensing and Intelligent Systems  
Typically, research and industry presented various practical solutions for assisting the elderly and their caregivers against falls via detecting falls and triggering notification alarms calling for help  ...  Accordingly, response from caregivers may be triggered prior to most fall occurrences and accordingly prevent falls from taking place.  ...  The fall-detection algorithm was devised using a thresholding technique with an accelerometer and gyro sensor. The fall-detection algorithm could detect signals 300 ms before the fall.  ...
