Gait Analysis System

Summary

This system mainly consists of floor reaction force meter (force plate*) using strain gage load cells to measure floor reaction force (vertical component, back & forth components, and left & right components), amplifier, AD converter, PC, analysis processing software, etc.
In addition to the technology and experience from integrated measurement instrument production factories for its design and manufacture, it received great help and instruction from the industry authorities to make the system meet the operation requirements from walk analysis study to function check.

Features

●Force platesʼ design will not generate excess burden.
●No interference between force plates.
●Load cell which integrates the technologies and experience of specialized manufacturers ensures excellent nonlinearity and hysteresis.
●Allows sensors used simultaneously to be connected with telemeter.
●Equips acceleration transducer, stick-load cell, articular-angle sensor, balance bar, etc. to easily add test projects.
●Installed software measures and calculates 3-component ground counterforce, acceleration waveform and walk cycle and speed, action point track, etc.
●Capable of using purchased all support components for 3D image processing system to become the one matching with different operation requirements Records and displays images of video camera and high-speed camera.
●Synchronously measures the distribution pressure on the foot sole.

Remarks

The force plate was developed under the commission of "Technology research combination and medical welfare equipment institute" (1976 to 1978) and then improved to remain in use up to now.
