Transforming Gait: Video-Based Spatiotemporal Gait Analysis

by   R. James Cotton, et al.

Human pose estimation from monocular video is a rapidly advancing field that offers great promise to human movement science and rehabilitation. This potential is tempered by the smaller body of work ensuring the outputs are clinically meaningful and properly calibrated. Gait analysis, typically performed in a dedicated lab, produces precise measurements including kinematics and step timing. Using over 7000 monocular video from an instrumented gait analysis lab, we trained a neural network to map 3D joint trajectories and the height of individuals onto interpretable biomechanical outputs including gait cycle timing and sagittal plane joint kinematics and spatiotemporal trajectories. This task specific layer produces accurate estimates of the timing of foot contact and foot off events. After parsing the kinematic outputs into individual gait cycles, it also enables accurate cycle-by-cycle estimates of cadence, step time, double and single support time, walking speed and step length.
