This technologic device is the key to timely and accurate assessment of dysfunctional gait.
Walk parameters are a powerful tool for functional assessment of orthopedics and neurological patients, allowing us to determine movement ability, to select the most successful treatment and monitor the results of therapies. BTS G-WALK is a user friendly device: the actual test is very easy to perform and the resulting reports are automatically generated and supply immediate comparison with normal range results.
It’s a break-through analysis tool for the study of dysfunctional movement and all pathologies related to the somatic nervous system, walk and postural stability.
BTS G-SENSOR How it works The system uses an inertial sensor connected to a computer via Bluetooth allowing us to determine spatio-temporal parameters as well as pelvic rotations. The sensor is located around the waist of the patient and secured by an ergonomic belt allowing free body movement: the patient will be free to walk anywhere. When testing is over an automatically generated report will show us the calculation of test parameters. These indexes are the result of a 3-years-long study which has been validated by the most avant-garde clinical centers in the world. The test can be run more than once in different patient conditions (such as wearing an orthosis or using walking aids) in order to test the actual affect of such different conditions.
Applications: Orthopedics: in order to choose the most suitable movement aid or to evaluate pre and post surgery strategies Neurology: for the definition of rehabilitation strategies and their follow-up Parkinson’s disease: for the evaluation of disease progression and the effectiveness of medications Falls prevention in the elderly: periodical prevention check-ups
