Abstract

© Copyright 2016 by SCITEPRESS - Science and Technology Publications, Lda. All rights reserved. Understanding the lower-extremity kinematic during daily and sport activities provides important information in order to detect abnormalities in human gait or analyse the execution of different sport techniques. Following this approach, this paper presents a kinematic data collection system of human gait in the lower extremities using six inertial sensors MPU 6050 and a microcontroller ATMEGA328P-PU. Six tests were performed and the angular variation was recorded during the execution. The curves obtained during the tests showed a maximum error of ±4, ±1, and -4 degrees at the Yaw, Pitch, and Roll angles respectively. This study proposes a mobile and inexpensive system for detecting the angular variation in reduced speed movements, ideal for goniometric measurement or analyse the techniques in certain sports.
