Identify early warning signs of disease.
Protokinetics’ gait analysis software and walkway mat are used by clinicians, educators, and researchers worldwide to identify gait abnormalities and plan therapies and interventions. Our innovations in pressure sensing technology and our proprietary gait analysis software offer scientifically valid, repeatable, clinically relevant data to guide gait assessment and clinical intervention.
- Clinically relevant gait assessments
- Verify and validate clinical interventions
- Temporal, spatial, and pressure measurements
- Quantitative, objective, non-invasive gait measurement
PKMAS Gait Analysis Software
Protokinetics Movement Analysis Software (PKMAS) effortlessly records temporal, spatial, and pressure measurements for a wide variety of testing protocols. Our gait analysis software can be used to test forward and backward walking, transitional movements, balance, running, jumping, hopping, and more.
ZENO Walkway Mat
The Protokinetics’ ZENO Walkway mat can be rolled out and set up in less than 5 minutes in any clinic, hospital, classroom or lab. This gait analysis walkway mat, along with our gait analysis software PKMAS, uses pressure sensing technology to calculate key variables for gait, balance, and other movement protocols. It can be installed permanently or remain portable.
Protokinetics’ Gait Analysis Software and System is used by:
Gait analysis is one of the most critical and informative tools for physical therapists. Data collected by our PKMAS gait analysis software and Zeno Walkway mat can be used to track the efficacy of clinical decisions for rehabilitation, surgery, adaptive devices, sports medicine, the progression of physical therapy, the improvement or regression of conditions and diseases, and many more applications.
Prosthetists & Orthotists
Data collected through Quantitative Gait Analysis (QGA) is instrumental in clearly identifying, understanding, and correcting gait deviations of amputee patients. Data collected by gait analysis software can be used to determine the cause of gait deviations and their accurate correction, and create baselines against which a patient’s progress can be tracked during rehabilitation.
Gait deviations frequently occur in pediatric patients as a result of dysfunction in the neuromuscular and skeletal systems. Data from Protokinetics’ gait analysis software can be used to quantify gait deviations caused by spasticity, ankle, knee, hip or back dysfunction, and other factors. Clinicians can evaluate this data to identify abnormalities and track and validate interventions.
Protokinetics’ gait analysis software and walkway mat allow pharmaceutical researchers to discover gait abnormalities or gait improvements in participants during clinical studies or clinical trials. Our tools allow researchers to measure quantitative parameters of gait which cannot be determined by observation alone.
Gait deteriorates with age and is an indicator of overall health in the elderly. Regular, quantitative gait analysis is a critical tool in discovering the leading indicators of diseases and debilitating conditions in aging populations.
Our PKMAS software and ZENO Walkway mat can assess progress or regression in patients with spinal injuries, knee abnormalities, foot and ankle deformities, hip abnormalities, osteoarthritis, amputations, and many progressive conditions and diseases. Our gait analysis software is also useful in analyzing post-orthopedic surgical success when a baseline has been created before surgery.
A thorough analysis of a patient’s gait is critical in identifying neurological conditions. Subtle variations can determine whether a patient is experiencing the onset of disease or the normal progression of age. Quantitative gait analysis can also provide neurologists with precise data to verify and validate the efficacy of interventions.
Medical Device Manufacturers
Protokinetics’ gait analysis software and walkway mat provide quantitative gait analysis data to assist medical device manufacturers in the design, testing, research, and approval of their devices.
Our gait and balance assessment tools measure human movement by collecting and analyzing data while running, walking, or standing still. This data is essential for manufacturers of assistive walking devices, gait training devices, lumbar orthoses, artificial limbs, canes, crutches and walkers, hip, knee, and ankle joint replacements, and other medical devices to prove the efficacy of their products and assist in R&D
With our gait and balance assessment system, educators can illuminate the gait cycle for their students. This data is a crucial adjunct to observational gait analysis in studying conditions and diseases that cause gait abnormalities.
