- A self-paced treadmill that can simulate overground walking has the potential to improve the effectiveness of treadmill training for gait rehabilitation. We have implemented a self-paced treadmill without the need for expensive equipment such as a motion capture system and an instrumented treadmill. For this, an inexpensive depth sensor, ASUS XtionTM, substitutes for the motion capture system, and a low-cost commercial treadmill is considered as the platform of the self-paced treadmill. The proposed self-paced treadmill is also convenient because the depth sensor does not require markers placed on user's body. Through pilot tests with two healthy subjects, it is quantitatively and qualitatively verified that the proposed self-paced treadmill achieves similar performance as one which utilizes a commercial motion capture system (VICON) as well as an instrumented treadmill. © 2013 IEEE.
