2D System

Starting from version 1.7 of the OptoGait software it is possible to use a particular bar configuration for obtaining a two-dimensional measurement area. To the classic bars (which we will call X), more bars (Y) can be added to form a rectangle, where new information can be gathered for the gait tests:

  • Step width: distance between the middle support point of each foot
  • Walking Base: distance between the innermost foot support points (for superposed steps this value can be negative)
  • Walking Points: middle points between the two support feet; their connection defines the gait progress (Line of Progression); conventionally it is expressed in positive values if there is a deviation towards left and negative with a rightward deviation
  • Walking Point Gap: progressive variation of the current walking point with respect to the previous one
