Abstract

Most clinics and clinical research facilities have embraced 2D motion analysis technology primarily because they are reliable, accurate, inexpensive, portable and less complex to operate when compared to 3D motion systems. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a rehabilitation regime using a low-cost augmented video-based portable system (AVPS). The study was a rehabilitation assessment study performed within a clinical motion analysis laboratory. Two case studies were evaluated based on two rehabilitation regimes designed for a mild cerebral palsy (CP) adult patient and a patient recovering from an Achilles Tendon Rupture (ATR) respectively. The AVPS was used as a clinical tool to assess the level of recovery during a walking task performed while the patients underwent routine rehabilitation regimes. Gait assessments were performed at specific time points to monitor recovery in both case studies. Ultrasound was used to complement the AVPS outcome measures for the ATR assessment. The AVPS produced gait outcome measures that provided useful clinical data at different time points. These gait outcome measures – walking speed, temporo-spatial parameters, and gait symmetry data were sensitive to detecting changes to the lower limb rehabilitation regimes administered to the CP and ATR patients.
