OBJECTIVES

Development

and

implementation

of

a

wearable

electronic

system,

to

capture

physical

quantities

associated

to

human

locomotion

in

the

most

comfortable

and

non
-
invasive

mode,

even

for

people

with

serious

disabilities

and

physical

impairments
.


The

system

should

be

usable

as

a

wearable

garment

and

functionally

autonomous,

allowing

the

monitoring

of

the

most

relevant

quantities,

not

only

in

clinical

or

lab

environment,

but

also

in

the

patient’s

daily

life,

with

minimal

interference

and

discomfort
.

The

quantities

to

be

captured

include

linear

and

angular

movements

of

the

lower

limbs,

as

well

as

the

myoelectric

signals

observed

at

the

surface

of

thighs

and

legs
.

The

observation

of

these

quantities

allows

for

a

multifactorial

analysis

of

locomotion

and,

consequently,

a

more

accurate

diagnosis

and

the

possibility

of

understanding

the

role

of

different

factors

in

pathology,

helping

the

physician

in

the

decision

taking

procedure

concerning

the

best

therapies
.
