Abstract

The aim of this study is to evaluate center of pressure and center of mass movement patterns in stroke patients, during activities of daily living while wearing instrumented shoes containing force sensors and inertial sensors. The use of instrumented shoes enables the measurement of balance parameters during ADL tasks without being restricted to a laboratory environment. Results indicate that in more demanding tasks, the mean CoP and CoM position shifts more towards the non-affected side compared to walking in a straight line.
