To correctly interpret and use inertial sensor data in human locomotion studies it is vitial to understand the various components of acceleration that contribute to total sensor output. Examples of physical activity together with Newtons laws are investigated in this chapter to provide both insight into the sensor data that is typically collected, together with approaches for analysis and calibration that lead to useful interpretation. Newton’s laws of motion (presented here for straight line motion) show the relationship between displacement (distance), velocity (speed) and acceleration.
