Abstract

In this research, we analyze the changes in gait when healthy subjects wear knee braces, which constrain the subject's motion, such as the elderly simulation kits. We aim to estimate leg disorders from image sequences of the subject's walking. Since gait varies widely among individuals, there are many researches on gait changes due to various disorders and the gait-based identification. In this paper, we want to obtain gait changes common to all subjects when the subject situations are changes, such as decreasing of a joint range of movement.
