Doctoral Candidate Shun-ping Lin Won the Gold Prize at 2012 Malaysia ITEX

Doctoral candidate Shun-ping Lin, at the Department of Physical Therapy and Assistive Technology of this university, took part in 2012 Malaysia ITEX International Exhibition of Inventions (the 23rd International Invention, Innovation & Technology Exhibition) held in Kuala Lumpur during May 17-19 under the instruction of his advising professor Jin-Jong Chen and Professor Terry Bo-jau Kuo of the Brain Science Institute, and won the gold prize of invention competition.

The 23rd International Invention, Innovation & Technology Exhibition is one of eight major exhibitions of inventions in the world, and 14 countries, 900 booths and 965 works took part in the exhibition this year. Prof. Chen, Prof. Kuo and Mr. Lin entered the competition with their "Gait Analysis System" (patent pending), and won the gold prize.

Traditional gait analysis is implemented in laboratories, and requires at least 6 high-speed cameras, 10 m pressure pad footpath, a high-order computer and a gait analysis software program for experiment. However, the Gait Analysis System by Mr. Lin, Prof. Chen and Prof. Kuo only requires at most 5 G-Sensors fixed to neck, lower back, knee and ankle respectively, so that the parameters and characteristics (acceleration, displacement, angle and angular acceleration) of various gaits can be calculated. The system can be used by clinicians, physiotherapists and trainers for identification as important reference data for clinic and experiment. The degree of variance in the gaits before and after treatment can be quantified, and even the severity of disease can be defined.

The Gait Analysis System has broken the limits of time and space, and the acquisition of physical data and reference data are not restricted to laboratory. The research budget can be saved. It is a major breakthrough in physiotherapy domain and sports technology assessment.
