Activities of daily living detection using home activity monitoring device in Duchenne muscular dystrophy patients


The objective of this study was to assess the feasibility of detecting walking, running and climbing stairs episodes in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) patients in a controlled environment. ActiMyo is a new device, designed to assess activity level in ambulant and non-ambulant patients with neuromuscular diseases outside the hospital environment. ActiMyo is composed of two watch-like devices that use magneto-inertial sensors to compute activity and gait variables. Automatic activity recognition is a supervised machine learning technique that can be used to infer activities from a large range of inputs.
