A Critical Tool for Physical Therapists.
The data collected by ProtoKinetics’ PKMAS software and Zeno Walkway mat is used by physical therapists to track the efficacy of clinical decisions for rehabilitation, surgery, adaptive devices, sports medicine, assessing the progression of physical therapy, the improvement or regression of conditions and diseases, and many more applications.
Physical therapists are experts in analyzing human movement, yet most have been trained only in observational gait analysis (OGA). Unfortunately, using OGA alone tends to focus on gross deviations in the patient’s gait and frequently misses more subtle deviations, resulting in a potentially incomplete analysis.
The ProtoKinetics gait analysis software and gait analysis system add to the physical therapist’s tools with gait data such as:
- temporal and spatial parameters
- coefficient of variation
- relative pressure
- step and stride
- gait phase
- gait cycle
- Center of Pressure (COP)
- static measurements such as quiet standing
- and more.
