Abstract:
    Gait Analysis is the characteristic study of human locomotion. We analyze human walking pattern using image acquisition systems and process it to find deviation from standard gait.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Gait analysis is a very common practice in the field of medicine. The doctors in Pakistan perform this analysis by observing the patient’s movement using naked eye. We are here to give a proper alternative to this by designing a system that will perform this analysis automatically and give result.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   People with any sort of disability or accident get an abnormality in their gait. Runners need to get their gait checked as well. As per 1998 census there are 3.28 million had disability. About 11544 people are injured yearly in accidents
How will the solution works
    The solution consists of a camera and active IR emitter as markers. The Person whose gate analysis is being done will be required to wear a number of 5 markers on his/her leg. The marker will then act as point through which the camera will detect the angles of the leg. For the procedure the person will be walking on a treadmill to limit space usage. The software will measure the angles and will compare values with standard values of a normal gait and give deviation accordingly
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    In Pakistan there are no commercial image acquisition based gait analysis systems yet. NED announced opening of a lab for 3D motion analysis back in 2013 but it’s not commercial. So this is a brand new idea. Globally there are various companies that offer their expertise in 3D motion analysis.
