Gyko is a new device, developed by Microgate, for obtaining information about the kinematics of any body segment as it performs a certain physical movement. Gyko contains the latest generation components that are used for carrying out accurate and repeatable measurements of acceleration, angular velocity and magnetic field in three dimensions.
- 3D accelerometer, to measure the linear accelerations to which the device is subjected.
- 3D gyroscope, to measure the angular velocities of the device.
- 3D magnetometer, to measure the magnetic field to which the device is subjected.
Gyko is the ideal tool for those who want to receive an objective evaluation of the human movement analysis in a quick and intuitive manner without any reduction in precision of the data measured. Thanks to the research carried out for creating and processing the software dedicated to it and its latest-generation technical features, GYKO offers services that can be compared to the industry gold standards, but its ease of use and data display make it a much more practical tool.
Gyko makes it possible to objectively evaluate and monitor joint functionality and muscle strength during rehabilitation phases and for training a certain area of the musculoskeletal system. It is used to quickly identify any posture deficiencies, problems or asymmetries and, thanks to the immediate delivery of the numerical values, it helps prevent relapses, complications and regressions of the disease or post-accident condition by periodically checking the results obtained and the effectiveness of the treatments. It makes it possible to perform motor movements that are more or less complex without limiting or influencing the subject, also due to the fact that it can be used outdoors and on any surface (grass, sand, unstable platforms, etc.). It motivates the subject to constantly improve his conditions.Power & Rehab Analysis (Standalone with RePower Software)
Walking, Running & Posture Analysis (with OptoGait System)
- Quantify deficits in joint function or muscle strength
- Evaluate and measure the subject’s balance in different situations and/or on different surfaces;
- Monitor exercise intensity with real-time, visual bio-feedback by means of a work threshold that can be set at the desired level;
- Trace and report the subject’s recovery throughout the rehabilitation process.
- Evaluate and monitor performance & strength through rapid, explosive, dynamic and maximum power measurements.
Jump Analysis (with OptoJump System)
- Antero-posterior and medio-lateral imbalance
- Main directions and breadth of the movement of the trunk
- Upper Phase Coordination Index (UPCI) that describes coordination in the rotation of the trunk
- Phase difference between the lower body and the upper body
- RMS, Harmonic Ratio and Harmonicity index describing gait stability
- Eccentric and concentric work and duration
- Force, Velocity and Maximum Power
- Rate of Force Development and Landing Rate
