Open-Source Remote Gait Analysis: A Post-Surgery Patient Monitoring Application.

Publication date: Nov 29, 2019

Critical to digital medicine is the promise of improved patient monitoring to allow assessment and personalized intervention to occur in real-time. Wearable sensor-enabled observation of physiological data in free-living conditions is integral to this vision. However, few open-source algorithms have been developed for analyzing and interpreting these data which slows development and the realization of digital medicine. There is clear need for open-source tools that analyze free-living wearable sensor data and particularly for gait analysis, which provides important biomarkers in multiple clinical populations. We present an open-source analytical platform for automated free-living gait analysis and use it to investigate a novel, multi-domain (accelerometer and electromyography) asymmetry measure for quantifying rehabilitation progress in patients recovering from surgical reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Asymmetry indices extracted from 41,893 strides were more strongly correlated (r?=?-0.87, p?
