THE POTENTIAL OF GAIT ANALYSIS: HOW AI CAN AID IN EXAMINING HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY TO MAINTAINING HOMEOSTASIS

Giuseppina Martella, Antonella Peppe

Abstract


Walking is a marvel of adaptability in healthy humans. It follows the 'golden ratio' and adjusts to specific demands. Artificial intelligence provides a world of possibilities for gait analysis. The utilized system incorporates 29 sensors, 6 acquisition chambers, and dynamic rhythm sensors. This tool assesses movement harmony and identifies pathology. Its diverse uses include rehabilitation, motor and non-motor re-education, and primary education, hinting at its vast potential.
