iv ABSTRACT COMPARISON OF KINEMATIC RESULTS BETWEEN METU-KISS & ANKARA UNIVERSITY-VICON GAIT ANALYSIS SYSTEMS Civek, Ezgi M.S., Department of Mechanical Engineering Supervisor: Asst. Prof. Dr. Ergin Tönük Co-Supervisor: Prof. Dr. S. Turgut Tümer December 2006, 162 pages KISS ( Ki nematic S upport S ystem) is a locally developed gait analysis system at Middle East Technical University (METU), and the performance of the system was evaluated before as a whole. However, such evaluations do not differentiate between the efficacy of the data acquisition system and the model-based gait analysis methodology. In this thesis, kinematic results of the KISS system will be compared with those of the Ankara University based commercial VICON (Oxford Metrics Ltd., Oxford, UK) system, in view of evaluating the performance of data acquisition system and the gait analysis methodology separately. This study is expected to provide guidelines for future developments on the KISS system. Keywords: Gait analysis systems, comparison, data acquisition performance, model- based gait analysis methodology, identical motion data, joint kinematics.
