First, sensor accuracy for estimating 3D body segment angle was assessed.
Study 1 explored the accuracy of the proposed sensors for estimating 3D body segment angle.
We assumed each body segment to be rigid, thus considering that the wearable sensors directly provide segment angle, our models were not sensitive to the exact location of sensor attachment.
Study 1: Estimation of a typical 3D body segment angle (lower back angle)
To explore whether the proposed model and algorithms allow real-time estimation of body segment angle and CoM trajectory, using the Matlab timer (Tic-Toc function), we controlled the execution of each trial for estimating and recording 3D angles of two segments calculating CoM trajectory.
Although this setup allows fair comparison between two systems for estimating a rigid segment angle, it may not represent the natural movement of a body segment.
