- During the rehabilitation training, the methods of gait analysis and planning are very important. We must consider the simplicity of implementation and the validity of method used. Combined with ultra-wideband wireless body area network, gyroscopes, acceleration sensors and TOA positioning technology, we proposed a gait analysis method that is also effective in three-dimensional space. After summarizing the existing methods of gait analysis, we point out the shortcomings of commonly method based video motion capture and the advantages of ultra-wideband wireless sensor networks. Then, we propose a method for three dimensional gait analysis within UWB wireless body area networks. The acceleration and angular velocity data of each sensor unit were measured during level walking. Based on the positioning algorithm, the location, acceleration and angular velocity data of each node can be calculated during level walking by the UWB wireless sensor networks. Define global coordinate and local coordinate and combine, we are able to establish lower limb gait kinematic equations.
