Gait and Run Analysis

Gait Analysis' data provided in real time are:

  • Stance phase: The stance phase is the supporting phase of each gait cycle. It begins with the contact of the heel and finishes with the set off of the tip of the same foot. It is therefore the time between the first and the last contact of two consecutive supports of the same foot. It is also presented as a percentage of the total gait cycle.
  • Swing Phase: The swing phase begins when the tip of the foot leaves the ground and finishes with the contact of the heel. It is therefore the time between the last contact of the first support of the foot and the first contact of the following support. It is expressed in seconds (sec) and as a percentage of the gait cycle of the same foot. The swing time of one foot corresponds to the single support time of the other foot
  • Single Support:¬†This is the time between the last contact of the current support and the first contact of the following support of the same foot, i.e. the time when only one foot touches the ground. The single support corresponds to the swing time of the opposite foot. It is expressed in seconds and as a percentage of the total gait cycle time
  • Total Double Support: This is the sum of two partial double supports defined DS1 and DS2
  • Step Time: This is the time between the first contact of a foot and the first contact of the opposite foot
  • Initial Double Support: This is the first Double Support Time
  • Terminal Double Support: This is the second Double Support Time
  • Step Length: distance between the tip (toe) of two subsequent feet or the distance between the heel of two subsequent feet
  • Gait cycle: time between the first contact of two consecutive steps of the same foot
  • Stride Length: distance between the tip of two subsequent footprints of the same foot or the distance between the heel of two subsequent footprints of the same foot
  • Speed: Average speed of a single step
  • Acceleration: Speed variations of the two preceding steps
  • Cadence: Rhythm expressed in steps per second
  • Total distance: progressive distance walked/run by a patient
  • Contact Phase: the time between the first contact of the heel and the complete support of the foot; the percentage indicates the value with respect to the total contact time
  • Flat Foot: the time the foot completely touches the ground; the percentage indicates the value with respect to the total contact time
  • Propulsive phase: the time between the lifting of the heel to the complete set off of the tip of the foot; the percentage indicates the value with respect to the total contact time
