The main concern of the work presented in this manuscript was setting up a complex system for the individualized management of mobility recovery for patients with neuromuscular and orthopaedics pathology through interdisciplinary research. Our goal is to aggregate information from multiple hardware devices into a single data acquisition and processing system with direct applicability in the human motility analysis, namely gait analysis. The authors combine high performance image acquisition techniques with the acquisition of clinically interpretable data. The purpose is setting up a complex database (medical, imagistic, biomechanical) and developing conceptual models for interpreting the available data, with direct applicability in choosing the adequate treatment and evaluating its efficiency. Since the authors are dealing with a system with open architecture, another aspect which concerned them was the security of the system. Consequently, they propose combining the conventional smart used for identification with biometric characteristics, namely fingerprints, substantially preventing unauthorised access to the confidential information
