This paper presents the integration of three-axis accelerometers sensors and the ZigBee networks for assess the gait cycle, in order to monitor a gait at any time and at anywhere, it through ambulatory a wearable gait monitoring system for application in a hospital network, or continuous monitoring in a patient’s diary life. The biomechanical analysis proposal of gait was conducted in two stages: (1) Integration of network nodes and the accelerometers sensors, and the private profile design for multiple ZigBee devices over the wireless network and (2) Assembly of the experimental evaluation of normal gait with the ZigBee accelerometers devices over a normal human lower limb. Finally, this work presents the experimental results based on measurements of three-axis accelerations in the ankle, knee and hip with a biomechanical analysis of the stance and swing phase in the normal gait.
