Abstract: Copyright © 2021 Anthony Bawa et al. Gait and posture studies have gained much prominence among researchers and have attracted the interest of clinicians. The ability to detect gait abnormality and posture disorder plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and treatment of some diseases. Microsoft Kinect is presented as a noninvasive sensor essential for medical diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. There are currently no relevant studies that attempt to summarise the existing literature on gait and posture abnormalities using Kinect technology. The purpose of this study is to critically evaluate the existing research on gait and posture abnormalities using the Kinect sensor as the main diagnostic tool. Our studies search identified 458 for gait abnormality, 283 for posture disorder of which 26 studies were included for gait abnormality, and 13 for posture. The results indicate that Kinect sensor is a useful tool for the assessment of kinematic features. In conclusion, Microsoft Kinect sensor is presented as a useful tool for gait abnormality, postural disorder analysis, and physiotherapy. It can also help track the progress of patients who are undergoing rehabilitation.
