Walk way™ System (multi-step barefoot analysis)

Greentech  
Walkway is a customizable low profile floor mat system that captures multiple sequential foot steps for analysis of foot function and gait. The system provides data for objective and quantified analysis that is used to answer clinical and research related questions. The Walkway's modular design allows you to choose the system sensing area and sensor resolution.
The software provides automated calculation of an array of gait parameters. Individual stances (foot strikes) are automatically detected and labeled as left or right and numbered from first to last stance.

Foot segmentation is applied to calculate toe-in or toe-out angle, compared to the line of progression. The software calculates values for step and gait time, distance, velocity, and cadence. It also provides individual data for the left and right foot in regards to the gait cycle, step-stride parameters, and symmetry scores, as well as differential data between left and right feet.

The Walkway system is used clinically to make assessments and determine treatment for pathomechanical and neuromuscular foot and gait affecting disorders (such as Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, and Spasticity) as well as diabetes-related issues such as pressure sores and ulcers. In the research setting, the Walkway is used to investigate a treatment hypothesis for pathomechanical and neuromuscular foot and gait disorders, and to assess the efficiency of a proposed treatment. The HR Walkway, with high resolution sensors, is ideal for detecting pressure profile discrepancies in small children and patients with deformed feet or perturbed gait. The software is available in several languages including Spanish, French and German. Please contact us for a complete list. Walkway is alo available foranimal gait analysis.
