Until now, performance analysis device using camera was developed for those who gained independent walking in the parallel bars. Correspondingly we took the images of walking by cameras, and approached to measure the level of recovery through image analysis. In these cases, some therapists could get into images, and it is not able to measure necessarily all the time. Also, there are approaches to take the walking data by floor reaction force through walking and the measurement of loading of parallel bars, but its effectiveness is poor. Thereon, to generalize this technique, we propose a measuring system a degree of recovery for walking form unsteady gait by him/her self by analyzing dynamic behavior of the weight, using time historical data of floor reaction force during walking and camera images [WUGOAD].
