This paper presents a brief overview of the commercial solutions and the research proposals for measuring the patient's movements, and is organized as follows. In Section 1, a review of laboratory measurement equipment for the patient's mobility evaluation will be described. In Sections 2 and 3, some proposals of portable measurement systems, used to monitor the patient or track his/her progresses during the treatment at home and in clinical environments, are presented and discussed. The measurement methods presented are marker-based motion capture and analysis systems, marker-less motion capture and analysis systems, robot-based and exoskeleton systems, vision systems and virtual reality, and personal motion measurement systems based on sensor networks.
