Purpose of Review Walking impairments are highly prevalent in persons with multiple sclerosis (PwMS) and are associated with reduced quality of life. Walking is traditionally quantified with various measures, including patient self-reports, clinical rating scales, performance measures, and advanced lab-based movement analysis techniques. Yet, the majority of these measures do not fully characterize walking (i.e., gait quality) nor adequately reflect walking in the real world (i.e., community amb...

Abstract Background The influence of total hip arthroplasty (THA) surgical approach on post-operative recovery is not well understood and often debated. This study compares anterior and posterior approach gait and patient reported Hip Osteoarthritis Outcome scores (HOOS) in the early phases of recovery. Methods A prospective study evaluated 20 control subjects, 35 direct anterior (DA), and 34 posterior approach (PA) total hip arthroplasty patients. Subjects were assessed pre-operatively and at 1...

This paper presents an automated, wearable sensor-based remote gait analysis method and demonstrates its utility by evaluating gait in patients recovering from anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Patients wore a single wearable sensor over the rectus femoris of each leg to collect over 15 hours of 3-axis accelerometer and surface electromyography data during daily life. A support vector machine classifier was used to identify four second windows of walking activity. Across all subje...

Panic attacks are an impairing mental health problem that affects 11% of adults every year. Those who suffer from panic attacks often do not seek psychological treatment, citing the inability to receive care during their attacks as a contributing factor. Herein, we introduce a mobile health (mHealth) biofeedback system that enables treatment of panic attacks wherever and whenever they occur and describe the results of an initial feasibility study. We find that only three of nine chronic panic at...

Field-based sprint performance assessments rely on metrics derived from a simple model of sprinting dynamics parameterized by 2 constants, v0 and τ, which indicate a sprinter’s maximal theoretical ...

There is a critical need for fast, inexpensive, objective, and accurate screening tools for childhood psychopathology. Perhaps most compelling is in the case of internalizing disorders, like anxiety and depression, where unobservable symptoms cause children to go unassessed–suffering in silence because they never exhibiting the disruptive behaviors that would lead to a referral for diagnostic assessment. If left untreated these disorders are associated with long-term negative outcomes including ...

Childhood anxiety and depression often go undiagnosed. If left untreated these conditions, collectively known as internalizing disorders, are associated with long-term negative outcomes including substance abuse and increased risk for suicide. This paper presents a new approach for identifying young children with internalizing disorders using a 3-minute speech task. We show that machine learning analysis of audio data from the task can be used to identify children with an internalizing disorder ...

The assessment of sprint velocity is useful for evaluating performance and guiding training interventions. In this paper, we describe an adaptive filtering algorithm to estimate sprint velocity using a single, sacrum-worn magneto-inertial measurement unit. Estimated instantaneous velocity, average 10 m interval velocity, and peak velocity during 40 m sprints from the proposed method were compared to a reference method using photocell position-time data. Concurrent validity of the proposed method...
