Title
(EN) METHOD AND DEVICE FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS ANALYSIS OF AMBULATORILY RECORDED MOVEMENTS OF AN INDIVIDUAL'S DIFFERENT BODY PARTS

Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to method for the analysis of movements of several different parts of an individual's body recorded by ambulatory measurement wherein the movements are registered by an accelerometer attached to each body part to be monitored and the signal is stored into memory. According to the invention, the signals registered by the different accelerometers are retrieved from the memory and conducted synchronously to a detector thereby enabling simultaneous monitoring of the movements of the different body parts. According to one embodiment, signals based on movements of the limbs, head and/or the middle body and, if desired, signals based on other functions of the body like eye movements, breathing, or pulsation of the heart, are conducted synchronously to the detector to allow simultaneous monitoring of the movements of the limbs, head and/or the middle body and, if desired, other functions of the body. The objective is to obtain a precise qualitative and quantitative characterization of individual's overall motor functions.

L'invention concerne un procédé pour analyser les mouvements enregistrés de plusieurs parties différentes du corps d'un individu en train de marcher, où les mouvements sont détectés par un accéléromètre fixé à chaque partie du corps à surveiller et le signal est enregistré dans une mémoire. Selon l'invention, les signaux provenant des différents accéléromètres sont extraits de la mémoire et amenés en même temps sur un détecteur, ce qui permet de surveiller simultanément les mouvements de différentes parties du corps. Selon une forme d'exécution, les signaux basés sur les mouvements des membres, de la tête et/ou du tronc et, lorsque cela est souhaité, les signaux basés sur d'autres fonctions du corps comme les mouvements des yeux, la respiration ou les battements du coeur, sont amenés simultanément au détecteur pour permettre une surveillance simultanée des mouvements des membres, de la tête et/ou du tronc, ainsi que, lorsque cela est souhaité, d'autres fonctions du corps. L'objectif est d'obtenir une caractérisation qualitative et quantitative précise des fonctions motrices générales de l'individu.
