Gait analysis is a well defined area in mechanical engineering. However, in biomedical and mechatronic engineering, Gait analysis of the human body is a lot newer, with many issues to overcome. One of the main problems faced by researchers is the scaling of models for comparison. This project will investigate gait analysis scaling for the human body, and produce a program to speed up the scaling process. This completed project will help assist in defining a more accurate process for scaling gait models and aid research in future to make further discoveries and advancements.
