How does GAITRite work?
As the patient ambulates across the walkway, the system
captures the geometry and the relative arrangement of each footfall as a
function of time.
The application software controls the functionality of the
walkway, processes the raw data into footfall patterns, and computes the
temporal (timing) and spatial (distance) parameters. The software's relational
database stores tests individually under each patient, and supports a variety
of reports and analyses.
Testing patients with or without shoes, including those
patients using assistive devices and ambulatory aids such as: crutches,
walkers, or canes. In addition, testing patients pre- and post-treatment is
quickly, and easily performed when utilizing this versatile and ingenious
The GAITRite electronic walkway system automates measuring
spatial and temporal gait parameters.
The walkway is portable, can be laid over any flat surface,
requires minimal setup an test time and requires no placement of any devices on
