Optogait Can Help With:
- Assess movement for pathological conditions
Benefits of Optogait
Optogait is an innovative system for movement analysis and functional assessment of patients with normal or pathological conditions. Optogait is an optical measurement system consisting of light emitting diode (LED) transmitting and receiving bars. Each one of these bars contains 100 LEDs allowing resolution as small as 1cm.
Why Choose Optogait at NHRC
OptoGait goes beyond the acquisition of numerical data from the LED bars though. Thanks to small cameras that can be positioned as desired, Optogait is capable of simultaneously acquiring numerical and video data of the tests being performed. Optogait synchronizes this data allowing for a more detailed analysis of a patient’s biomechanical patterns and/or deficiencies. The measurement and video data obtained from the system is stored in a database which allows the practitioners at Niagara Health & Rehab Centre to make performance comparisons between different patients and/or the same patient at different points in time.
