Abstract
Posture transitions are one of the most mechanically demanding tasks and are useful to evaluate the motor status of patients with motor impairments, frail individuals or the elderly, among others. So far, wearable inertial systems have been one of the most employed tools in the study of these movements due to their suitable size and weight, being non-invasive systems. These devices are mainly composed of accelerometers and, to a lesser extent, gyroscopes, magnetometers or barometers. Although ac...
