Abstract
Body movements monitoring may allow preventing, diagnosing, and recovering several wrong attitudes that could lead to possible future diseases. A multi sensor system was developed to measure thigh movements in free-living environments all-day long especially during walking. The device is a very simple and portable system based on low-cost technology. It is composed of an inertial sensor and a strain sensor for detecting thigh movements, and of a microcontroller and a Bluetooth module. The measur...
