Wearable Sensors for Monitoring of Human Activities

Quantification of human standing balance provides unique insight into the integrity of the human sensorimotor system, including the identification of balance deficits in conditions such as mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), stroke, and aging. While a number of high-cost instrumented balance quantification systems are available, they are primarily geared towards research settings. Novel technologies using accelerometry or other inexpensive sensors are being developed for use in the clinical markets. The research problem to be addressed in this project will be to investigate the consistency and comparative accuracy of a novel wireless sensor-based system, the HeadCheck Balance System, in relation to laboratory and commercial balance quantification tools. The significance of this research immense due to the need for rigorous performance testing and validation of novel technologies aimed towards the clinical settings before commercialization.
