In this study, we present algorithms developed for gait analysis, but suitable for many other signal processing tasks. A novel general-purpose algorithm for extremum estimation of quasi-periodic noisy signals is proposed. This algorithm is both flexible and robust, and allows custom adjustments to detect a predetermined wave pattern while being immune to signal noise and variability. A method for signal segmentation was also developed for analyzing kinematic data recorded while performing on obstacle avoidance task. The segmentation allows detecting preparation and recovery phases related to obstacle avoidance. A simple kernel-based clustering method was used for classification of unsupervised data containing features of steps within the walking trial and discriminating abnormal from regular steps. Moreover, a novel algorithm for missing data approximation and adaptive signal filtering is also presented. This algorithm allows restoring faulty data with high accuracy based on the surrounding information. In addition, a predictive machine learning technique is proposed for supervised multiclass labeling with non-standard label structure.
