Primary Objectives

(1) To collect data using 3D Motion Capture (MOCAP) for 2 groups of subjects with pathological gait populations i.e. (i) chronic hemiparetic strokes and (ii) unilateral transtibial amputees.

(2) To analyse and compare MOCAP data collected for above populations with reference anonymised data obtained from the local healthy RRIS ABILITY data set. 

(3) To co-develop with NTU RRIS team, a clinician-centric SPM1D clinical analysis framework using the validated SPM1D analyses framework for the objective analysis of pathological gait Movement Proficiency Index (MPI) such as stroke and transtibial amputees. This will allow us to develop movement proficiency analysis for whole body movements down to isolated joint degrees of freedom. 


The study is being reviewed by NHG domain specific research board. A total of 15 stroke and lower limb transtibial amputee subjects will be recruited and will undergo each, a 2.5 hours MOCAP data collection session at RRIS laboratory.
