People with physical impairments often have asymmetric gait. To evaluate if their overall symmetry is improving during intervention, there needs to be a simple metric that can help classify gait patterns that includes multiple measures of gait asymmetry. The Combined Gait Asymmetry Metric presented here is based on the Mahalanobis distance of multiple step parameters. We tested able-bodied subjects with perturbations that involve a change in leg length, the addition of ankle weights, and adoi:10.1109/embc.2016.7591158 pmid:28268761 dblp:conf/embc/RamakrishnanMR16 fatcat:julgdumxt5be3guhrxm2tq7cfm
