Abstract 

In this study, a primary IMU-based gait dataset has been collected from 30 participants using a MOTI goniometer. This device collects movement data related to specific joints depending on the location of the device. The MOTI sensor contains an IMU consisting of an accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer. Accelerometers measure acceleration the acceleration of the device, gyroscopes measure angular velocity of the device, and magnetometers measure the magnetic field of the Earth. In our study, the device was attached to arm and leg (thigh) positions. In the first scenario, the sensor is attached to the right leg above the knee to gain movement data regarding the knee while in second scenario, sensor is attached to the right arm above the elbow to obtain movement data regarding the shoulder. An adjustable strap is used to comfortably and firmly attach the sensor to the participant. These joints were chosen for their prominence in the gait cycle, and to provide joints from more than one limb.
