Abstract
This study suggests an optical method to measure cardinal of gait (step width, step length, and stride length) with position sensitive detector (PSD). The effect of reflector’s shape (flat and cylinder) on the PSD output voltage was examined for the application of the suggested system to real situations with a curved shape reflector (e.g. shoes). Various mathematical models were evaluated to find the optimal equation for the distance measurement. Considering the effect of shape on detected signal, the inverse polynomial model was developed. The suggested method is simple to operate, low in cost, small in size, and can evaluate gait parameters in real time. This method is expected to be useful in the field of rehabilitation and sport science
Keywords
1. Introduction
For the rehabilitation process, measurements of the temporal and spatial features of gait are very important for monitoring functional recovery [1] . Quantitative gait analysis is required to evaluate the effects of various rehabilitation treatments designed for improving patient’s gait disability [2 - 5] .
Many methods have been studied to evaluate walking pattern. Measuring foot prints from patient’s painted feet was used to evaluate walking pattern. This method was simple but had limitations in space and accuracy. Walking kinematics can be evaluated with accelerometer but it can be shock-sensitive and has not enough accuracy due to double integration of acceleration for the derivation of displacement [6 - 10] .
The 3-D motion capture system with multiple IR cameras is widely used. However, the equipment is very expensive and can only be used in a specialized motion laboratory. To process data, specialists are required and the data processing time is relatively long. The system requires calibration in each test set and long preparation time. Sometimes patients claim inconvenience in attaching reflection makers on their body [11 - 12] .
Force plate method requires multiple force sensors to measure walking cycle within limited plate area [13] . This method has difficulty in evaluation walking pattern of patients with paralysis. Foot switch method can be used for detection of foot contacts on the ground. This method is useful for normal gait analysis but not suitable for pathological gait because of abnormal contact patterns such as loss of heel contact [14 - 17] .
The purpose of this study is to suggest alternative method for the identification of gait feature which would be convenient, inexpensive, and operating in real time. According to the principle of triangulation method, position sensitive detector (PSD) converts detect reflected light into distance-related voltage. After mathematical modeling of PSD output, we can obtain step width, step length, and stride length. Our final objective is to monitor gait parameters without time and space limitations using wireless module.
2. Materials and Methods
- 2.1 Gait features
Walking patterns can be described by gait phase, gait cycle, step length, and stride length. Stride length indicates the distance between two sequential initial contacts of the identical foot (e.g., right to right), step length indicates the distance between initial contact of one foot and the other foot (e.g., right to left), step width indicates the mediolateral distance between the locations of sequential initial contacts by two feet (see Fig. 1 ) [18] .

Definition of gait parameters
- 2.2 Position sensitive detector (PSD)
Detection of distance in PSD is based on the principle of triangulation method [19 - 20] . PSD is not be affected by the color of reflector, while most optical sensors show change in the light intensity when reflected by different colors. PSD detects reflected light which induces electric current. The electric current ratio is determined by the hitting point of reflected light on the sensing area of light detector which converts the current ratio into voltage as an output signal.
Fig. 2 shows the principle of triangulation method in PSD sensor. Eq. (1) describes the relationship among lengths (L 1 , L 2 , X 1 , and X 2 ). The angle of incident beam can be changed by the ratios L 1 / L 2 and X 1 / X 2 . PSD sensor (GP2Y0A21YK0F, sharp, Japan) module is composed of light emitter (IR diode), lenses, and light detector. When the distance between sensor and reflectors is long, the incident beam hit the right part of the sensing area of light detector (see solid line). Likewise, when the distance between sensor and reflector is short, the incident beam hit the left part of the sensing area of light detector (see dashed line).

where L 1 is the distance between lens 1 and reflecting object, L 2 is the distance between lens 2 and light detector (fixed), X 1 is the distance between lens1 and lens2 (fixed), X 2 is the distance between normal point to lens 2 and the hitting point of incident light in the sensing area of light detector.
The distance measuring range is 10 - 80 cm. It provides an analog output voltage that is correlated to the distance. Its supply voltage can be from 4.5 to 5.5 V and typical average dissipation current can be from 30 to 40mA.
- 2.3 The effect of reflector’s shape
For the application of PSD to real situations, curved shape reflector must be considered. The effect of reflector’s shape on PSD output voltage was investigated with specially designed setups. Reflecting objects such as ankle and shoes are not perfectly straight. They usually have curved shapes. Experimental setup was designed to test the effect of reflector’s shape (see Fig. 3 ). The diameter of cylindrical reflector was 8 cm which was similar to shoe’s heel shape. The PSD sensor is fixed on an optical table. The distance between the sensor and the reflectors was changed by an optical rail (PRL-24, Newport, Irvine, CA) with a resolution of 0.005 cm.

- 2.4 Data acquisition and calibration
Output signals from PSD sensor were collected using DAQ board (NI USB-6008, National Instrument, Austin, Texas) in digital form, and saved in a computer with LabVIEW (NI LabVIEW 8.0, National Instruments, Austin, Texas). Modeling of the experimental data was done by using Matlab (R2008a, Mathworks, Portola Valley, California).
Polynomial equations (1 st to 5 th order), exponential function, power function, logarithmic function, and fractional function were tested for calibration. Forward and inverse mathematical models were selected to obtain the distance. First, the relationship between PSD output and distance was mathematically modeled. Next, the inverse relationship was used to obtain the distance.
The inverse model is possible when the functions show monotonic pattern (increase or decrease). Eqs. (2)-(6) show inverse models with polynomial equations (1 st to 5 th order), exponential function, power function, logarithmic function, and fractional function.

The role of PSD 1 and PSD 2 were to obtain the cross distance between toe and heel (S 1 ) and step width (S 2 ), respectively. After, applying Eqns. (7)-(9), step width, step length, and stride length can be calculated and monitored with LabVIEW in real time

where S 1 is the cross distance between toe and heel [cm], S 2 is the step width [cm], S 3 is the normal distance between toe of one foot and heel of the other foot [cm], and fl is the foot length [cm].
To decrease the deviation of measuring distance by moving direction of the reflective object, we considered to set the sensor that the moving direction of the reflector and the line between emitter center and detector center are vertical. The sensors were mounted vertically and the shoes moved horizontally.
3. Results and Discussion
- 3.1 The effect of reflector’s shape
Fig. 5 shows the effect of reflector’s shape on PSD output. Flat and cylinder reflectors show some differences in short distance up to 15 cm, while differences are negligible in long distance. Various models were applied to find the optimal function to get distance.

Example of LabVIEW display
Fig. 10 shows the gait parameters such as step width, step length, and stride length in four subjects (two female and two male) in static positions. To test the possibility of PSD sensor for gait analysis, human subject wore the shoes attached with PSD sensor as shown in Fig. 4 . By measuring the cross distance between toe and heel (S 1 ) and step width (S 2 ), step length and stride length could be obtained using Eqns. (7)-(9). The relationship between the reference distance and the calculated distance output was evaluated. Experimental results with four subjects showed that the inverse 5 th order equation had RMSEs of gait parameters such as step width, step length, and stride length were ± 0.0135 cm, ± 0.7792 cm, and ± 1.5584 cm, respectively. Other models such as power function and fractional function (see Table 1 ) were also tested for possible practical use. Inverse power function had RMSEs of gait parameters such as step width, step length, and stride length were ± 0.1654 cm, ± 0.8419 cm, and ± 1.6839 cm, respectively. Also, inverse power function had RMSEs of gait parameters such as step width, step length, and stride length were ± 0.2436 cm, ± 1.0398 cm, and ± 2.0796 cm, respectively. Both power function and fractional function were good for possible use; however, the inverse 5 th order equation was the best model with the smallest RMSEs of gait parameters. Measured values were correlated with reference distances in test range.

Measurement of gait parameters
The attached angles in the range of ± 4° deviation were tested and the RMSE of S 1 was ± 0.4449 cm. As results, the gait parameter errors such as the RMSEs of step width, step length, and stride length were ± 0.0135 cm, ± 0.7792 cm, and ± 1.5584 cm, respectively. The step width (S 2 ) is independent of S 1 while the step length and stride length are dependent on S 1 . The errors of the step length and stride length can be increased as the error of S 1 is increased.
Even though the optical method has limitation in accuracy, the suggested technique can be used conveniently using a remote module without space limitation and in real time using LabVIEW display. We suggested a new optical method to obtain gait parameters. In future study, we will reduce the S 1 error with multiple sensors and the better sensor design.
Our results are not perfectly accurate at this stage and have difficulty in collecting data during continuous dynamic motion. Wireless module should be added in future study for dynamic motion without limitations of testing space.
The suggested optical sensor is more durable than the accelerometer-based sensor. Even though the camera-based system has the high precision of human motion, the camera equipment is very expensive and can only be used in a motion laboratory with specialists performing data analysis. The proposed sensor can be used without space limitation and in real time with the LabVIEW program. Thus, the proposed sensor has advantages that other commercial products cannot offer.
At least, the results of this study imply that optical method using PSD sensor has high possibility to perform gait analysis. Further study and better design should be done to get data during dynamic motion. We may use multiple PSD sensors with ultrasound sensors for better accuracy. Wireless module to transfer the sensor output signal to PC should be done for monitoring gait parameters which may reduce time and space limitations. By differentiation of distance, further information about walking speed and acceleration may be obtained. The results can be applied in the field of rehabilitation and sport science.
4. Conclusion
In this study, we developed an optical method to measure step width, step length, and stride length using PSD sensors. This sensor is based on the principle of triangulation method. While most optical sensors show color dependency, PSD sensor is not affected by reflector’s color. Thus, we can collect distance data without color dependency and this is a very strong benefit as optical sensors.
The effect of reflector’s shape was investigated with flat and cylinder reflectors to get accurate distance information. Various mathematical models such as polynomial equations, exponential function, power function, logarithmic function, and fractional function were evaluated to find the optimal equation. With 5 th order polynomial equation, we obtained the best R 2 and the minimum RMSE. In this study, PSD sensors were attached on one shoe and the other shoe was used as reflector. The result showed that actual distance was correlated well with calculated LabVIEW output distance. The measured gait parameters with human subjects imply that our optical method can be used for gait analysis. This study can be applied in the field of rehabilitation and sport science.
