What is OptoGait?

System that records and analyzes a persons movement while they are doing various exercises

Used by doctors, physical therapists, athletic trainers etc. to pinpoint deficiencies in their patients and recommend treatment plans

how do you use optogait
How do you use OptoGait?

Exercises usually consist of running, jumping or walking

Ex: squat jumps, marching, single leg jumps

Exercises can be done on the ground or (in the case of running/walking) on a treadmill

OptoGait helps patients discovers which muscles they may be favoring

Creating a better balance in your movement decreases pain from movement-related injuries and increases performance in athletes

optogait technology
OptoGait Technology:

Records a patients movement with a transmitting and receiving bar

Each has 96 LED’s (can vary) which communicate on an infrared frequency

optogait technology1
OptoGait Technology:

Cameras also record the patients movement and sync in with the transmitting and receiving bars so the patient can see where the deficiency occurred

optogait analysis
OptoGait Analysis:

User receives graphical, numerical, and video feedback of their results

Values are based off of left or right side

Analysis provides information on the users asymmetry in their movement through comparison with averages

Standard Deviation and variability Coefficient also provide data about any imbalances

gait analysis report
Gait Analysis Report:

Analyzes Lengths, Gait Parameters, Time Parameters, & Speed Parameters

personal profiles
Personal Profiles:

The information OptoGait records gets transferred to a personal profile which can be used for comparison for later tests

Any important information about that patient can be added to a patients profile (ie: photo, age, weight, previous injuries etc.)
