Walking pattern in healthy adults changes with age. A poor walking pattern results in fall and fear of falls. It is important to detect early changes in gait so that corrective measures are taken. In this project I am planning to use a sensor (Heel2Toe device) that detects when an individual makes a correct step while walking. In addition, the proposed device will also give a sound feedback when person makes a correct step. This device will be used by the therapist to understand gait deviations as well as prescribe this device to use at home for training.
