Gait Analysis and Gait Analysis with Upper Extremity Analysis

  • Normalize data by body weight, height, percentage of gait cycle, and stride length
  • Use pre-defined 6 degree of freedom rigid bodies for fast, easy and accurate set-up

Gait Analysis

  • Perform real-time data collection with no post-processing.
  • Use pre-defined 6 degree of freedom rigid bodies for fast, easy and accurate set-up.
  • Define virtual joint centers using Bell, Davis or Leardini methods or from user defined anatomical landmarks.
  • Output all kinematic data including joint moments and forces using simple drop-down menus.
  • Trigger data collection with forceplate impact or foot switches for hands-free collection.
  • Normalize data by body weight, height, percentage of gait cycle, and stride length.
  • Automatically ensemble average output data. Display with standard deviations and/or scatter plots.
  • Create user parameterized databases for comparative analysis of subject data.

Gait  Analysis Software

This is an image showing the results of selecting some common lower extremity variables for a gait activity. The graphs display the Grood and Suntay angle for right knee flexion, right knee flexion angular velocity and the ground reaction force on the right foot.

Gait Analysis-with Upper Extremity Analysis

  • Incorporate instrumented walkers and canes from AMTI into the analysis of gait.
  • Output all kinematic data including upper extremity joint moments and forces using simple drop-down menus.
  • Register and align transducer force and moments with the hand's local coordinate system.
  • Trigger data collection with forceplate impact or foot switches for hands-free collection.
  • Normalize data by body weight, height, percentage of gait cycle, and stride length.
  • Automatically ensemble average output data. Display with standard deviations and/or scatter plots.
  • Create user parameterized databases for comparative analysis of subject data or use existing research data.  see UW-L Gait Data Sets



AMTI's hand transducer is easily incorporated into walkers and canes. When the transducer's coordinate system is registered or aligned with the local coordinate system of the hand, The MotionMonitor® can compute the joint forces generated at the wrist, elbow and shoulder. The MotionMonitor® includes pre-defined methods for completing the registration. Display of animated forces and graphical displays of data graphs are selected from intuitive drop-down menus.
