Abstract

Introduction: In healthy population, spatial parameters of gait such as stride length and step length are
frequently linked with gait cycle but can be obstructive, time taking and difficult to measure. This study is to
check theefficacy of kinect azure for evaluating of spatial parameters of gait in normal healthy population.
Kinect is accurate, unobstructive, low cost clinical gait analysis systems have many uses like diagnosis,
monitoring, management and rehabilitation.
Method: The research has been designed as an observational study.The total of 132 participants will be
taken from AVBRH, sawangi Meghe for study as per exclusion and inclusion criteria.With intervention the
span of the study will be 6 months. It holds single period, concurrent validity evaluation comparing spatial
gait parameters derived from the Kinect system.
Discussion: This study protocol aims to assess the efficacy of Microsoft kinect azure for evaluation of
spatial parameters of gait.The study’s expected outcome will concentrate on the evaluation of the usability
of kinect to assess spatial gait on healthy individuals.
