This paper presents a discussion about the implementation of superficial magnetic sensor and pressure sensor to find patterns and parameters in order to predicting the intention of movement for people with musculoskeletal system problem in lower limbs.

The information is obtained through reading position and movement by magnetic and pressure sensor installed in different parts of the body. The advantage of this sensor is the reference of the position of the every part of the body. Using the sensor in some parts of the body is possible to calculate the muscle contraction for the prediction of intended movement.
