Synopsis

Human walking or gait is a continuous process of controlled supports and fallings of the body via the synchronous movement of the legs. The capability of walking promotes the dynamic of a human in everyday activities. From the view of human health, good quality of gait reduces the musculoskeletal injuries due to uncontrolled impact and collision. Human gait or walking styles could be monitored and assessed as a corrective measure. The applications includes: gait quality after putting on a new pair of shoes; gait quality after trauma or rehabilitation procedure; gait quality upon prescription or alignment of a prosthetic leg etc. Kinematic data of the walking steps could be collected instrumentally. The data are post-processed and statistically analysed. The data are normalized and projected into orthogonal basic vectors called Principle Component. Hence independent of the measure units of the sensors. Eventually, a visual guide assessment methodology is designed and developed enabling the comparison amongst human with respect to the ‘normal’ statistically. The farther to the centroid of the ‘normal’ indicates poor gait quality, and wise versa.

 

Biodata Speaker   
Ir. Dr. Tee Kian Sek graduated with the honour degree in Mechatronic Engineering from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in year 1997. He started his career as a PLC programmer with a local company dealing with material handling automation for nearly 4 years and later a bakery machinery company for nearly 2 years. Later he joined in Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia as an academician. He further his study in Mechatronic Engineering and eventually completed his PhD from the University of Leeds, UK, in year 2012. Since then, he is actively involved in lecturing and supervision, research and industrial collaboration. He sees that mechatronic engineering as a compound field that is applicable in many applications in industrial automations, rehabilitation, supportive and nursing devices, medical instruments and devices etc.
