Abstract

Many methods of analyzing gait by foot pressure distribution time-sequential images have been studied. However, the measurement for training how to walk correctly is not yet established. In this paper we propose new gait parameters by which a walking instructor can teach directly how to move each part of the foot sole. These parameters are extracted by quantitatively evaluating the movement of heel, middle part and each finger. First, foot sole is divided into 10 parts by template matching. Then, partial load of 10 parts while walking is calculated. And finally, the following three kinds of parameters are detected, maximum load, phase at which partial load is maximum and duration of contact duration for each part of the foot sole. The experimental results show that the proposed method can be applied to training for a walking.
