Received: 7 December 2015 / Revised: 16 January 2016 / Accepted: 18 January 2016 / Published: 21 January 2016 No Machine learning methods have been widely used for gait assessment through the estimation of spatio-temporal parameters. As a further step, the objective of this work is to propose and validate a general probabilistic modeling approach for the classification of different pathological gaits. Specifically, the presented methodology was tested on gait data recorded on two pathological populations (Huntington’s disease and post-stroke subjects) and healthy elderly controls…
