Abstract

Body sensor networks (BSNs) create an enormous opportunity to revolutionalize the way we learn, work, entertain and live today. A particularly promising application of BSNs is in health monitoring. Research indicates that various disorders in aging ranging from mild cognitive impairment to dementia and Alzheimer's could be diagnosed early based on the study of locomotion. Sensor platforms integrated into clothing provide the possibility of reliable locomotion monitoring. In this work, we demonstrate a real-time wireless sensor system that quantitatively measures some of the factors involved in locomotion.
