Volume: 1027
Pages: 209 - 218
Obesity is becoming one of the prevalent lifestyle diseases across the globe; need to be deal with behavioral intervention through self-management and motivation in line with rigorous physical exercise. When it is a matter to handle obesity to regain the health, parameters like: self-motivation, self-control, guided treatment, counseling, monitored exercise, and medical assistance are essential in consideration list. Paper proposes the model encompassing three-dimensional care including nutritional intake, counseling, and gait monitoring during exercise. Considering the effect of obesity on biomechanics of foot, gait pattern analysis of obese person provides greater information regarding variations in spatio-temporal parameters. Ever-increasing contribution of behavioral intervention will maintain the line of action in the perfect direction. A selection of accelerometer, gyroscope, and electromyography sensors is appropriate for the cause to derive basic hardware. MSP430 processor and ZigBee module are used for processing information and establishing communication. Within close proximity and placement of nodes at a different level, nodes are able to achieve 90–94% packet delivery ratio in actual environment compare to the 100% packet delivery in simulation environment. Result suggests that with the adaption of accurate classification process, system could be useful for controlled exercise monitoring or for daily activity monitoring, which is working at low-power level with affordable wearable technology in achieving wellness. © Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd 2020.
