Measuring GAIT Function
One Step at a Time
ProtoKinetics Celebrates 10 Years
On April 13, 2022, ProtoKinetics celebrates our 10th anniversary! Over the past 10 years we have been blessed to call amazing clinicians, researchers, educators, and industry leaders our clients and partners. We are proud of how, with your help, we have pushed the boundaries of what can be done with gait mat technology by introducing protocols and becoming the gold standard for temporal spatial validation. Thank you to our clients, collaborators and partners who have made the past 10 years such a success!
Gait analysis is a leading indicator of a person’s health
Generating a gait baseline and measuring it accurately and periodically can identify early deviations in gait function, allowing for tracking many degenerative conditions and diseases.
ProtoKinetics is the leading developer of gait analysis software and assessment systems
For use in research, clinical trials, education, hospitals, sports medicine and rehabilitation clinics. Our mission is to improve a patient’s quality of life by providing researchers and clinicians with accurate gait and balance measurement, which can be used to verify and validate interventions to increase and maintain mobility and independence.
Best-in-class gait analysis platform
The ProtoKinetics Zeno™ Walkway powered by PKMAS software collects and analyzes temporal, spatial and pressure data along with our unique metric: Symmetry of Propulsion. These solutions and associated applications are used for client evaluation, measuring patient progress, conducting clinical research, and education.
Clinically relevant gait assessments
ProtoKinetics applications provide scientifically valid, repeatable, clinically relevant data for a wide variety of gait and balance assessments. Our platform accurately and efficiently measures and defines the single support time in individuals post-stroke, tracks step length progress in patients displaying balance impairment, and can show improvement or decline against an established baseline in geriatric conditions, as well as many other kinds of assessments.
Wearable Sensors & Data Collection Using The Zeno Walkway
The use of wearable sensors for analysis of human locomotion allows for data collection protocols that can leave the laboratory and clinic setting. This has the potential to provide new insights, however it is important to keep these new measurements grounded. It is essential to validate output from wearable sensors for gait analysis for specific testing protocols and specific testing populations to ensure effective implantation. The best way to validate a wearable sensor gait assessment system is with a gold standard system like the Zeno Walkway System.
