Why is it important?

Applications are conceivable in the areas medical diagnostics, performance assessment, subject recognition, and robotics. For diagnostics e.g., a scale for diagnosing fatigability in multiples sclerosis patients was developed.


This article was of primary important for me, since it provides the base for various applications in medicine, robotics, human locomotion, and sports.
