Gait tracking in daily life using inertial sensors

Inertial measurement units (IMUs) are self-contained devices that measure kinematic information (acceleration and angular rate) without emitting signals or requiring external references. Advances in MEMs technology, combined with improved sensor fusion and estimation techniques, have made IMUs the preferred sensing modality for a growing number of biomechanical applications.

Lauro Ojeda is a Research Scientist at the University of Michigan. He studied Electrical Engineering at the Army Polytechnic School in Quito-Ecuador. He has over 20 years of experience in the fields of inertial sensing, sensor data fusion, estimation techniques, Kalman filtering, biomechanics, and gait analysis. His work in these fields has been the basis of current unrestrictive gait analysis research, conducted in collaboration with several departments at the University of Michigan and other research centers across the world. He developed identification and reconstruction techniques capable of providing the first biomechanical measurements and reconstruction of loss of balance events as they occur in ordinary life.
