FDM-T system for stance and gait analysis
The basic system FDM-T consists of a treadmill ergometer with an integrated, calibrated measuring sensor. The sensor element itself consists of numerous high-quality capacitive force sensors. On a treading area of 150 x 50 cm the sensor unit comprises more than 5000 pressure / force sensors. Using a technology especially developed by zebris the movement of the treadmill is compensated so that completely stable gait and roll-off patterns can be analyzed. Different types of treadmill ergonometers are available for the basic system.
The display of all measuring results is effected in real-time utilizing commercially available PC's. A feedback control of the force on the extremities is also possible. The software additionally provides a "signal viewer" which displays all measuring variables in slow motion and completely synchronized.
In the standard arrangement all FDM-T systems are equipped with a video-synchronization output for time-synchronization with the video-camera. The optional camera module contains a high-quality video camera with stand, a wide angle lens as well as all cables necessary for operation and synchronization and the software extension.
The time synchronization using the optionally available cordless radio adapter DAB is effected via an infrared interface. The radio adapter is connected to the PC via an Bluetooth interface and can be linked with up to eight EMG amplifiers or inertial sensors which enable the system to perform kinematic motion analysis whereby a skeleton model is animated.
Different types of treadmill ergonometers are available:
