Abstract: Author Affiliations 1IRCCS Neuromed, Italy 2Daniele Cafolla, IRCCS Neuromed, 86077 Pozzilli, Italy Received: April 03, 2019 | Published: April 17, 2019 Corresponding author: Daniele Cafolla, IRCCS Neuromed, 86077 Pozzilli, Italy DOI: 10.26717/BJSTR.2019.17.002951 Gait analysis has established in recent years as an essential tool to quantify rehabilitation effectiveness. Nevertheless, available commercial systems need a structured environment, are very expensive, require an exact calibration and are not portable. Recently, it has been verified that Kinect can be used for kinematics assessment and has been placed side by side to commercial systems, taking advantage of the potentiality of both systems to provide more detailed analysis. The proposed method aims at having a low‐ cost, easy to use, markerless and portable Kinect‐based system that can perform gait analysis without needing an accurate calibration and a structured environment.
