Continuous daily-life monitoring of balance control and arm function of stroke survivors in an ambulatory setting, is essential for optimal guidance of rehabilitation. In a simulated ambulatory setting, balance and arm function of seven stroke subjects is evaluated using on-body measurement systems (Xsens MVN Biomech and the Xsens Instrumented Force Shoes). Ethical approval for this study was obtained. Qualitative parameters of body balance and arm function are estimated and compared with the results of a generally accepted clinical balance assessments (e.g. Berg Balance Scale and Fugl-Meyer).
