This paper describes a smart walker based on
Arduino Mega computation platform and multiple sensing
channels to materialize Physical Rehabilitation Internet of Things
System. The system extracts metrics such as orientation, travelled
distance, the number of steps performed and the patients gait
using Inertial Measurement Units, ultrasound and Load Cell
sensors. Such metrics are stored in a remote server and available
through a system’s web and mobile app.
