Ask any podiatrist, and they’ll tell you: There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all method to orthotic selection. Every patient requires a unique approach to understand his or her needs for fit and comfort. There’s only so much visual observation or force plate technology can...
A commonly debated question in gait research surrounds the best methods to capture the most natural gait. Force plates may be one of the more accurate tools available, but that can come with some limitations – especially when working with animals. The weight of the animal, paw size and their...
This article summarizes the following research: A., Soonjae, K., Seunghyeon, S., Kang, J., Hyeseon, K., Youngho. “Asymmetrical Change in the Pelvis and Spine During Cross-Legged Sitting Postures,” Journal of Mechanical Science and Technology 27 (11) (2013) 3427-3432. DIO 10.1007/s12206-...
Collecting and analyzing joint biomechanics data is a complicated process, often requiring several systems to capture essential data needed for analysis. With this in mind, the BioRobotics Lab has developed a solution to help streamline and simplify this process – the simVITRO system . Their...
When developing or testing the effects of footwear design , in-shoe pressure measurement provides important data to understand foot motion and movement, and can even provide an indication of comfort. The ability to identify areas of high pressure in the footwear gives a warning to potential sources...
Gait analysis researchers are a data-driven breed. Your gait analysis depends on total clarity of your data capture, right down to the finest detail. With the Strideway™ modular gait analysis system , you’re never at the mercy of how your system averages or interprets your data; with...
When analyzing how a person navigates obstacles, maintains balance in moving vehicles and walkways, or adjusts their gait while crossing uneven surfaces, there is little that force plate technology can provide to enhance your research. The only way to really understand and measure the nuances that...
What is Gait? To truly understand pathologies or injuries in human locomotion, we must first understand the methods in which our patient or athlete needs to move. Gait (walking or running) is typically considered the method by which movement from point A to B occurs. Gait evaluation helps to...
As research helps drives clinical treatments and procedures, it is becoming increasing more important to evaluate humans in real-life environments. Data collected in a static environment like a laboratory does not always translate to the dynamic environments in which athletes perform in sporting...
After hours of gait data collection, there’s nothing more frustrating than to see your data isn’t as clean as you were hoping. Incomplete foot strikes, inconsistent asymmetries, or even assistive devices like walkers, canes, and crutches, can affect the quality and repeatability of the...
