Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Post surgical patients need to resume a correct load distribution over both legs in order to facilitate bone osteogenesis. We propose a device for continuously monitoring lower limbs loads. It can be used by the patient to be aware of his loading conditions, by the physician or physical therapist to perform a quantitative analysis of applied loads. We tested the device on two subjects and verified its capability to detect reduced loads on the affected limb and its usefulness in helping to recognize in which walking phases.
