What is OptoGait?
OptoGait is an optical measurement system consisting of a transmitting and receiving bar. Each of these contains between 33 and 100 LEDs, depending on the chosen resolution.
The LEDs on the transmitting bar communicate continuously with those on the receiving bar, and the system detects any interruptions in communication between the bars and calculates their duration.
In short, this allows the system to measure step length and body imbalance during the performance of a simple walk on a treadmill with an accuracy of .001 of a second. The OptoGait software makes it possible to obtain the maximum amount of data connected with the client's — deficiencies - in real time.
OptoGait takes it one step further. Thanks to small cameras that can be positioned as desired, it allows recording of the images of the tests performed, synchronizing them with the events measured. You will be able to cross-reference the images and data.
The film sequences are saved in the database, along with the data. This makes them easily searchable and comparable and allows you to compare past and current evaluations as well as individuals within your practice.
