Collection: OptoGait Walking & Gait Analysis System

3 products

OptoGait is a new innovative portable and modular gait analysis system. 

Optogait is a state of the art system of analysis that brings a proven philosophy of assessment to injury prevention and rehabilitation. Classically, contact gait analysis has been precise, informative, and costly. This last attribute has limited its use to large biomechanical institutes. To control costs, simple contact pads have been employed. Contact pads, however, cannot assess dynamic motion. Optogait’s innovative design affords doctors, therapists, and researchers the ability to become their own high-tech laboratories; contact analysis is now affordable and portable.

Systems range from one to 100 meters. When paired with a standard treadmill, all aspects of the gait cycle can be studied. Parameters (e.g., contact time, flight time, and pre-swing) can be measured to .001 of a second. Left and right differentials are recorded. Precise, objective data is correlated to determine extent of injury and effectiveness of treatment.

All data is displayed in real time thru the software platform (affording instant decisions on treatment protocols) and paired with both lateral and sagittal video analysis. Data is stored over time, affording the clinician the ability to determine effectiveness of treatment. Injury prevention is enhanced via objective data, showing increased asymmetrical tendencies before pain sets in. Chronic injuries are addressed via gait-empowered differentials, identifying the root cause of malingering problems. All aspects of dynamic motion are recorded to ensure your patient is functioning at his/her highest level.

OptoGait Allows Practitioners To:

  • Assess objectively the patients general physical conditions.
  • Identify deficiencies, postural problems and asymmetries on the basis of data and videos and determine how the patients' performance is being effected.
  • Develop and apply therapeutic-rehabilitation applications, rehab approaches and orthopedic solutions on the basis of precise data.
  • Prevent - thanks to immediate assessment of numerical values - of relapses, complications and involutions of the pathological or post-accident condition due to wrong evaluations or diagnosis.
  • Periodically verify the results and the efficacy of treatment.
  • Motivate patients giving them tangible proof of improvement.
  • Compare post- and pre-accident values if available.
  • Verify, in a dynamic situation, the efficacy of arch supports, insoles or functional tapes.
  • Compare various shoes and their effect on the patients gait.
  • High intensity neuromuscular rehabilitation work thanks to the Biofeedback function in real time.
