It is a well-known factor that our activities of daily life play an important role for staying healthy. In order to validate different motion analysis techniques for clinical and therapeutic purposes Fraunhofer FIRST set up a sensor-controlled testbed. The technologies investigated include time-of-flight cameras, bio-inspired optical stereo-sensors, laminar pressure and proximity sensors as well as body-worn devices including inertial sensors. This paper presents these technologies and sketches the process of sensor fusion and motion analysis being under implementation in the Fraunhofer Motion Technology Validation Lab.
