Mobilise-D Workshop at ISPGR World Congress 2022
Workshop – Real-world monitoring of gait: easier said than done
Real- world monitoring of gait is enabled by wearable devices including inertial measurement units (IMUs) that allow to quantify digital mobility outcomes (DMOs). While these devices and the associated DMOs are adopted more and more frequently, there is still limited awareness of how complex it is to ensure their validity and what could hinder comparability of data obtained during such assessments. In this workshop we will aim at raising this awareness by sharing the experience we gained as part of Mobilise-D, a project funded by the European Union (EU) as part of the Innovative Medicine Initiative, aiming at fostering regulatory approval and clinical adoption of DMOs. To reach our aim we will share the complementary and multi-disciplinary experiences from the researchers involved in the project to discuss the various challenges that they encountered in association to the following activities: a) Conceptual definitions of DMOs and their operational implementation (including data standardisation); b) Algorithm requirements and implementation; c) Devices characterisation and spot-checks d) Experimental protocols for the validation of the DMOs e) Statistical analysis and visualisation tools.
