The gait is probably the most diagnostically sensitive part of the neurological examination, but is poorly quantified. We built a browser-based app that used the smart phone’s accelerometer to better quantify gait.

What it does

Uses the built in accelerometer to trace the gait for the doctor for better quantification and storage for interval comparison

How I built it

Built a web app that uses the smart phone's accelerometer

Challenges I ran into

Integrating the accelerometer to obtain position is noisy

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Installation-free use of native hardware

What I learned

Anything is possible

What's next for ataxic
