Abstract-- This paper investigates an ear worn sensor for the
development of a gait analysis framework. Instead of explicitly
defining gait features that indicate injury or impairment, an
automatic method of feature extraction and selection is
proposed. The proposed framework uses multi-resolution
wavelet analysis and margin based feature selection. It was
validated on three datasets; the first simulating a leg injury,
the second simulating abdominal impairment that could result
from surgery or injury and the third is a dataset collected from
