The recent advancement in gait analysis combines internet of things that provides better observations of person living behavior. The biomechanical model used for elderly and physically challenged persons is related to gait-related parameters, and the accuracy of the existing systems significantly varies according to different person abilities and their challenges. The paper aims to discuss these issues.
Deployment of wearable sensors in gait analysis provides a better solution while tracking the changes of the personal style, and this proposed model uses an electronics system using force sensing resistor and body sensors.
Experimental results provide an average gait recognition of 95 percent compared to the existing neural network-based gait analysis model based on the walking speeds and threshold values.
The sensors are used to monitor and update the predicted values of a person for analysis. Using IoT a communication process is performed in the research work by identifying a physically challenged person even in crowded areas.
