G-WALK is a small inertial sensor that is used for the study of dysfunctional human movement. It relays 12 spatio-temporal parameters of gait and three planes of pelvic movement to a PC via Bluetooth connection.
Quick Patient Set Up

Internal Memory Storage - Batch Mode
Rechargeable Battery via USB Charging
Triaxial Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Magnometer
There are six validated testing protocols to chose from which are very simple to perform. As G-WALK is designed to be a portable system, these tests can be completed in the clinic, in the lab, or out in the field.
Not only is G-WALK an essential clinical tool with simplified reporting, it is also a powerful tool for research. Within each protocol, there is the option to export cleanly formatted raw data for analysis in Excel.
Below is just some of the quantitative data provided in the Walk Test report. In this instance, the clinician has assessed a stroke patient. You can clearly see the spatial-temporal asymmetries between the patients left and right side with the prolonged left stance phase. The symmetry index for pelvic tilt is very poor and there is a clear difference in pelvic obliquity throughout the gait cycle with the right side being elevated. Normative ranges are provided for each outcome measure e.g. the grey zones on the pelvic angle graphs. These results are vital to accurately monitor the patients rehabilitation. If you're not objectively assessing, then you're guessing!
Another useful feature of the G-WALK software is the ability to compare multiple tests. This allows you to quickly and accurately assess the effectiveness of different interventions, or monitor change over time.
The following graphs have been automatically generated from multiple walking assessments. In this case, a Parkinson's patient has been assessed every 6 months over a 2 year period. As their condition has deteriorated over time, we can clearly see the reduction in their speed, stride length and propulsion, whilst their cadence has gradually increased.
