Deep Learning supported gait analysis

  • Gait analysis is important for the assessment of clinical endpoints for the therapy of e.g. Morbus Parkinson or Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
    However, the current procedure requires a gait analysis lab setup or exhaustive manual annotation work.
    Our aim is to develop a tool for marker-free video-based gait analysis under real-world conditions.
    Therefore, we strive to employ modern techniques of Computer Vision and Deep Learning, 
    to extract the clinically relevant gait parameters with a high level of automation.
