Path Feel is an insole that provides vibrational feedback to the soles of people at risk of falls, such as those with peripheral neuropathy, who are unable to feel the ground properly due to a sensory deficit, or those with general balance issues. By amplifying the sense of touch of the feet to the ground, users are able to identify accurately when their feet touch the ground, thereby reducing the sense of imbalance as well as incidence of falls.


Gait is a vital sign and is actually quite representative of someone's health. Path Feel incorporates sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope and pressure sensors) that enable us to track gait. The key responsibility of the Signal Processing Engineer / Data Scientist will be to work on the algorithms that track spatio-temporal gait parameters.


Key responsibilities and required skills:

  • Characterisation of gait and computing of gait parameters

  • Signal and data processing of time series from the sensors

  • Signal filtering

  • Desktop research

  • Pattern recognition for activity monitoring

  • Machine learning for signal processing

  • Pattern recognition for activity monitoring

  • Data set definition

  • Programming: Python (Matlab is optional)

  • Machine learning

  • Gait parameters definition

  • Experience: at least 2 to 3 years

  • Embedded firmware programming knowledge is a plus

  • Back end cloud infrastructure and database experience is a plus


Keywords (for you to be a good relevant candidate the majority of these keywords should ring a bell):

Hidden Markov Model, Dynamic Time Wrapping, Kalman filter, Gait Lab, Sensor Fusion


Expected outcomes:

  • Desk research and implementation of algorithms to estimate gait parameters on someone walking in a non-control environment. That work will be based on our previous research and work

  • Validation of those algorithms within a Gait Lab ideally

  • Comparison of those gait parameters between healthy and different groups of non-healthy individuals

  • Design of a strategy and first implementation of algorithms to detect or even predict events like falls, gait change
