OptoGait

What is OptoGait
It is an optical measurement system consisting of a transmitting and receiving bar.

Each of these contains from 33 to 100 leds, depending on the chosen resolution.
The leds on the transmitting bar communicate continuously with those on the receiving bar. The system detects any interruptions in communication between the bars and calculates their duration.

This makes it possible to consult them at any moment and, as with numerical data, make comparisons between the performances of different patients and/or the same patient at different moments. Starting from this fundamental data, the dedicated software makes it possible to obtain a series of parameters connected to the subject’s performance with the maximum accuracy and in real time.

The absence of moving mechanical parts ensures accuracy and great reliability.

Qualit and Quantity
OptoGait goes beyond the acquisition of numerical data: thanks to small cameras that can be positioned as desired, it allows recording of the images of the tests performed, synchronising them perfectly with the events measured. This makes it possible to enjoy the advantages of cross-checking between data and images and also those deriving from more detailed video analysis through the exploitation of the possibilities offered by the dedicated utility.

The film sequences and all the other data are saved in the database. This makes it possible to consult them at any moment and, as with numerical data, to make comparisons between the performances of different patients or of the same patient at different moments.

GYKO

What is Gyko?
GyKo is an inertial measurement tool for the analysis of the movement of any body segment

Thanks to its latest generation components, it is able to supply acceleration measurements of up to 16g and angular velocities of up to 2000°/s with an acquisition frequency of 1000 Hz. The Bluetooth data transmission provides real-time measurements directly to the PC via the Microgate software that, with its scientifically validated algorithms, offers simplified data processing and interpretation. Data can also be acquired without a PC, using a MicroSD memory card, thanks to its long lasting battery.

Functionality and components
GyKo makes it possible to objectively evaluate and monitor joint functionality and muscle strength during rehabilitation phases and for training a certain area of the musculoskeletal system. It is used to quickly identify any posture deficiencies, problems or asymmetries and, thanks to the immediate delivery of the numerical values, it helps prevent relapses, complications and regressions of the disease or post-accident condition by periodically checking the results obtained and the effectiveness of the treatments. It makes it possible to perform motor movements that are more or less complex without limiting or influencing the subject, also due to the fact that it can be used outdoors and on any surface (grass, sand, unstable platforms, etc.). It motivates the subject to constantly improve his conditions.

Gyko contains the latest generation components that are used for carrying out accurate and repeatable measurements of acceleration, angular velocity and magnetic field in three dimensions.

About us

Company details

Founded in Bolzano in 1989 by the brothers Vinicio and Roberto Biasi with the objective of creating timing systems for sports, Microgate has expanded its know-how and its partner network to approach new challenges with success. Giving particular attention to Design and Innovation, today the company works in four fields of development (Professional Timing, Training & Sport, Medical Rehab and Engineering). With its sales network it covers 30 countries on 4 continents, and among its customers there are the European Southern Observatory, the Italian Timers Federation, the Italian Track And Field Federation, the most prestigious football clubs as well as some of the most important rehabilitation clinics in Italy and abroad. In 2010 Microgate USA was founded in Mahopac, NY.

Since 2004 the company has created Micro Photon Devices, a copartnership with the Milan Polytechnic. The first product of this spin-off is a photon counter, already purchased by NASA, Hewlett-Packard, Novartis, and MIT, with great application potentials in the field of biomedical, industrial, and astronomical technologies.

In the Bolzano site Microgate monitors the entire process of technological development: from planning to prototyping, up to production. Approximately thirty employees, 9 of which are engineers specializing in various fields (electronics, IT, aerospace), represent the core of the company. Working on the edge of technological development, being in touch with the most advanced international development centers, for Microgate training and research have highest priority.
