Abstract

A novel method to provide an objective visual guide during lower limb prosthetic alignment is proposed. A customized ambulatory device was built to collect kinematic and temporal gait data from 3 subjects walking in four different experiment setups. Multiple gait events within a gait cycle and stride time were derived as feature variables and were pre-processed using Principle Component Analysis (PCA). Distinctive clusters due to different walking setups were noticed in a PCA plot in two dimensions. Dispersion of each clusters and distances amongst each other explains the walking variability and differences under different setups.
