This paper presents a study on the Design and development of a kinematic analysis system for lower limb disorders. The main objectives of the project are to design a sensor system with a cost-efficient and intelligent IMU sensor that can measure the gait parameters and help clinicians to diagnose. A kinematic analysis system is used for the detection in abnormal gait and rehabilitation of human gait. In the early days, gait analysis of the lower limb of the human body is done by an optical motion analysis system using high-speed definition cameras which is high cost and complex which cannot be easily applied to clinical. Some companies like Xsens, Invensens, etc made their IMU sensor gait analysis system, but the cost of these systems is also very high, which cannot be afforded.
