research is investigating the smart distributive tactile sensing technology and
signal processing techniques to discriminate human gait and balance information
from the dynamic response of a flexible surface. In contrast with other
technologies for sensing human movement, this research is leading to devices
that are mechanically robust, efficient to construct and able to discriminate
the types of motion of people on the surface.
research is developing surfaces able to output information to discriminate
patient motion and human behaviour. Challenges are in
the efficient real time derivation of information output that will vary between
applications. To date the method has been successfully applied to discriminate
movement in sport and health monitoring.
