Spatiotemporal treadmill gait measurements using a laser range scanner: Feasibility study of the healthy young adults

Spatio-temporal parameters are typically used for gait analysis. Although these parameters are measured by sophisticated systems such as 3-D motion capture system or optoelectronic bars, these systems cannot be deployed easily because of their high costs, large space requirements and elaborate set-up. The purpose of this study is to develop a system for measuring spatiotemporal gait parameters using a laser range scanner during treadmill gait.
