A Footprint Analysis: Comparison between Conventional Scanning Method and Motion Capture System
Footprint is a key element in human physiological characteristic study, for determining gender, height and weight. This study is to investigate the reliability of using conventional scanning method by comparing results with motion capture system method. The study takes footprint images from conventional scanning and processed using MATLAB. The captured gait movement data are generated from Vicon Nexus and Vicon Polygon respectively. Afterwards the data from the two methods were analysed for correlation test. The significant difference between measurement of gait parameters using Vicon and conventional scanned method were tested using paired sample t-test and the concurrent validity of conventional scanned method was tested using Pearson correlation. Although there was significance difference between measurement using both methods, the correlation analysis displayed moderate to high positive significant correlation of the parameters indicating the validity of the conventional scanned method. This concludes this study to accept the alternative hypothesis that there is a linear relationship between these two procedures.
