The implementation of a wireless accelerometer application for the quantification of gait may enable an autonomous strategy for the quantification of gait. A wireless accelerometer application may potentially enable the remote, autonomous, and quantified evaluation of gait beyond the confines of a clinical facility. The accuracy and reliability for the application of accelerometers for gait evaluation has been established through the selection of specific mounting positions based on the anatomy of the subject. Wireless accelerometer systems have been successfully demonstrated for establishing a quantified gait disparity for hemiparetic subjects. For example, the quantification of hemiparetic gait has been conducted using the lateral epicondyle of the femur as a mounting position [1].
