The “SMARTGAIT” cooperation project involves developing a gait analysis based on a smartphone video. Using a visual-interactive movement analysis, “SMARTGAIT” aims to better recognise and treat gait disorders. In addition, the health behaviour of patients is to be positively influenced, for example, through self-measurement of gait in the home environment.
The cooperation project combines technical progress with research in the practical everyday life of the Kliniken Schmieder, as well as further development. In the process, Subsequent GmbH developed a human skeleton recognition system in cooperation with the University of Constance, which was expanded to include biomechanical and sensorimotor aspects.
The „SMARTGAIT“ prototype is being tested by patients for user-friendliness, acceptance, and safety. Implementing „SMARTGAIT“ should contribute to improving gait screening, therapy monitoring, and rehabilitation measures in inpatient neurological rehabilitation and aftercare. The project also aims to offer an alternative to the already existing solutions by being more user-friendly, cost-effective, and technically advanced.
