Toward an objective assessment of mobility in clinical and daily activity assessments

"Quantification of mobility is the key to monitor the progression of mobility disorders as well as the effect of an intervention. Inertial measurement units (IMUs) with dedicated algorithms can quantify postural transitions and gait as the two key aspects of mobility in an objective and continuous manner. Assessments performed in the clinic are more indicative of people’s best performance or capacity, while assessments performed at home represent mostly their actual performance. Yet the relationship between these two settings is not fully understood, both due to the existing gaps in technical algorithms as well as challenges in comparing two inherently different domains. To this end, in this talk, I firstly focused on developing and validating algorithms to quantify mobility in both clinical and domestic environments. The added clinical value of these IMU-based mobility assessments was shown in several populations with mobility impairments. Finally, by proposing novel approaches, I focused to bridge the gap between clinical and daily activity assessments."
