Information Structure of Human Walking and Its Application on Analysis and Diagnosis of Impaired Walking
To develop tools for assisting diagnosis, prediction and evaluation of walking function impairment, in turn, to support therapy and rehabilitation for walking function restoration.
To create global information structure of human body and human actions
Causal inference for unknown foot function
・Explored and constructed the BN representations among main muscle activities of foot, plantar pressures (toes, fore foot and rear foot) and toe motions of different subjects including healthy and artificial impairment.
・Results are analyzed and constructed the BN model in 3 stages during stance phase of walking for better understanding of foot functions.
