Portable Gait Analysis
The value of sophisticated, video-based gait analysis is well established.
However, the cost of establishing a gait analysis clinic is high (often more than $250,000). A gait lab also requires space and dedicated personnel. As a result, routine use of gait analysis in clinics has been very limited.
In addition, the lab environment under observation does not mirror the patient’s actual living or mobility requirements. That is, labs analyze a very limited number of steps on level ground.
A Revolutionary New Gait Analysis Device
The need for an easy to use, inexpensive, yet accurate and portable gait analysis system has been too long. However, highly dedicated research in both medicine and technology is a must before this can happen.
