Distinct Feature Extraction for Video-Based Gait Phase Classification

Recent advances in image acquisition and analysis have resulted in disruptive innovation in physical rehabilitation systems facilitating cost-effective, portable, video-based gait assessment. While these inexpensive motion capture systems, suitable for home rehabilitation, do not generally provide accurate kinematics measurements on their own, image processing algorithms ensure gait analysis that is accurate enough for rehabilitation programs. This paper proposes high-accuracy classification of gait phases and muscle actions, using readings from low-cost motion capture systems. First,12 gait parameters, drawn from the medical literature, are defined to characterize gait patterns. These proposed parameters are then used as input to our proposed multi-channel time-series classification and gait phase reconstruction methods. Proposed methods fully utilize temporal information of gait parameters, thus improving the final classification accuracy. The validation, conducted using 126 experiments, with 6 healthy volunteers and 9 stroke survivors with manually-labelled gait phases, achieves state-of-art classification accuracy of gait phase with lower computational complexity compared to previous solutions.
