Steadys allows assessing the functional state of the patient’s locomotion system as well as analyzing the efficiency of a tailor-made rehabilitation program.
During the test, the patient makes several steps while the software records the gait parameters and automatically detects deviations.
Neurosens inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors are used to record the gait parameters. These miniature watch-sized electronic devices are positioned on the patient’s shank (and/or back) and record acceleration and angular velocity by three axes (ensured by built-in 3D gyroscope and 3D accelerometer) as well as EMG data from two differential channels. A total of 20 gait parameters can be recorded. The IMU sensors are wireless, powered from a rechargeable battery and transfer data to the personal computer via Wi-Fi. The signal acquisition is not affected by the surrounding metal constructions.
Gait Assessment without Treadmill
The assessment of the gait parameters can be done without a treadmill: the patient can walk on any smooth surface, over the office floor or even outside.
Two Minutes per Examination
Requiring minimum preparations to be done on the patient, the gait assessment does not take much time. It is just a few minutes from the moment of the test start-up to assessment report generation.
Movement and EMG Recording by the Same Device
Now you don’t have to use an additional EMG system to determine muscle activation pattern. Both gait parameters and EMG data are recorded by the same compact device – Neurosens IMU sensor. That’s it – no more cables and other equipment on the patient’s body. Steadys is surely your time-saver.
Easy to Use
The gait assessment is quite simple. The workflow includes the minimum number of steps and can be quickly mastered by any technician familiar with this equipment. The interactive prompts guide the patient to the proper gait patterns.
