Jochen Klucken received the Graduate degree in medicine from the University of Regensburg, Regensburg, Germany, in 1996. He received the Habilitation degree in neuroscience in 2009, working on cell biology aspects of neurodegeneration in Parkinson’s disease. In 2004, he also started the translational research projects applying sensor-based motion detection in movement disorders. Since 2008 he is the Vice Head and a Principle Investigator in the Department of Molecular Neurology at the University Hospital Erlangen, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany (Head Prof. Dr. Juergen Winkler) focusing on cell biology aspects of neurodegeneration and mobile healthcare technologies for integrated care concepts in Parkinson’s disease. He is cosupervising the Movement Disorder Unit of the University Hospital Erlangen and performing several translational research studies in wearable sensor technologies for patients with movement disorders.

Accurate estimation of spatial gait characteristics is critical to assess motor impairments resulting from neurological or musculoskeletal disease. Currently, however, methodological constraints limit clinical applicability of state-of-the-art double integration approaches to gait patterns with a clear zero-velocity phase. We describe...
