Abstract: The goal of this thesis was to explore the usability of on-foot sensors for ambulatory gait analysis. Using a human factors engineering approach, two different ambulatory gait analysis prototypes were assessed in two separate studies. The first study was conducted with student participants in a university setting and the second study was conducted in-situ with neurorehabilitation patients at Bridgepoint Hospital. The usability and patient experience of the prototypes were assessed, and based on these findings a set of recommendations was developed. These issues and recommendations are detailed in this thesis and are expected to inform the design of future iterations of the prototypes.
