An Energy-Efficient Adaptive Sensing Framework for Gait Monitoring Using Smart Insole

SKU: 010218



Gait analysis is an important process to gauge human motion. Recently, longitudinal gait analysis received much attention from the medical and healthcare domains. The challenge in studies over extended time periods is the battery life. Due to the continuous sensing and computing, wearable gait devices cannot fulfill a full-day work schedule. In this paper, we present an energy-efficient adaptive sensing framework to address this problem. Through presampling for content understanding, a selective sensing and sparsity-based signal reconstruction method is proposed. In particular, we develop and implement the new sensing scheme in a smart insole system to reduce the number of samples, while still preserving the information integrity of gait parameters. Experimental results show the effectiveness of our method in data point reduction. Our proposed method improves the battery life to 10.47 h, while normalized mean square error is within 10%
