Data was simultaneously collected from a laboratory embedded force plate. Step times were derived from the raw IMU data at the three IMU locations using methods that have been shown to be accurate. Step times from all locations were valid compared to the force plate. Foot IMU step time was the most accurate (Pearson = .991, CI width = 3.00e2), the trunk IMU was the next most accurate (Pearson = .974, CI width = 4.85e2) and shank step time was the least accurate (Pearson = .958, CI width = 6.80e2). All three sensing locations result in valid estimations of step time compared to the gold standard force plate. These results suggest that the foot location would be most appropriate for clinical applications where very precise temporal parameter detection is required.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2016 IEEE||Keywords:||Gait analysis;Biomedical measurement;Force sensors||DOI:||10.1109/EMBC.2016.7590790||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||2016 IEEE 38th Annual Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC), Orlando, Florida, USA, 16-20 August 2016|
