Description

Human Gait Analysis Made Easy

Strideway is a versatile product that can be used for patients young and old.Strideway is a versatile product that can be used for patients young and old.

The Strideway™ is the first truly modular gait analysis platform in the industry. Strideway provides objective information on force and plantar pressure, plus temporal (time), spatial (distance), and kinetic (movement) parameters at the click of a button.

Strideway™ System Features:

  • Modular platform captures multiple footsteps in a single pass and allows you to choose the system sensing area and sensor resolution
  • Integrates with other gait lab technologies, such as EMG and motion capture systems
  • Automated calculation of an array of gait parameters: step and gait time, distance, velocity, and cadence
  • Automatically detects foot strikes with labels for left or right and number stances from first to last
  • Foot segmentation aids in calculating toe-in or toe-out angle, compared to the line of progression
  • Low profile platform reduces risk of tripping and minimizes gait changes and wider to accommodate walkers
  • Quick set-up and data collection process

Strideway: A Step Above the Rest!

Applications

Strideway™ System Applications

  • Identify asymmetries or gait dysfunctions
  • Quantify foot function and gait patterns over several strides
  • Evaluate plantar pressure distribution for asymmetries and areas of high pressure
  • Monitor improvements post surgery or rehabilitation
  • Track patient progress with database and comparison reports
  • Determine the effectiveness of a proposed treatment
  • Assess high pressures and deviated Center of Force trajectories resulting from foot dysfunction and/or gait related disorders
  • Evaluate and determine treatments for pathomechanical and neuromuscular foot and gait affecting disorders
  • Investigate a treatment hypothesis for pathomechanical and neuromuscular foot and gait disorders
  • Screen for areas of potential ulcerations

Data shown here is from a patient with a walking assistive device (quad cane). The software auto identifies foot strikes and disregards the pressure from the cane.Data shown here is from a patient with a walking assistive device (quad cane).

Research Validated Solutions

Numerous articles have been published regarding computerized multi-step gait analysis and its applications. Tekscan has compiled a list of these research publications in our Medical Bibliography.

Configuration

Strideway™ System Components

Strideway™ is a modular gait analysis system available in lengths from 1-5 meters long. This system includes the embedded scanning electronics, software, and patented thin-film sensors. With simply two cords, one power cord and one USB cord per system, set up is streamlined and efficient.

The system comes with 2 end caps to help patients/subjects reach their comfortable gait prior to capturing the data, eliminating the need to discard steps or clean up the data in post data collection analysis.

Strideway is modular up to 5m. A 4 tile system is shown here.Strideway is modular up to 5m. A 4 tile system is shown here.
