Protokinetics For Orthopedic surgeons
Gait analysis helps Orthopedic surgeons assesses a patient’s body movement by measuring data while running, walking, and standing still.
Gait and balance assessment
Postoperative care is also affected, with changes in gait informing decisions on bracing, physical therapy, or additional surgery.
- temporal and spatial parameters
- coefficient of variation
- relative pressure
- step and stride
- gait phase
- gait cycle
- Center of Pressure (COP)
- static measurements such as quiet standing
- and more.
This gait and balance assessment data can be used to create standards and baselines against which the patient’s progress can be compared, independent of or as an adjunct to the surgeon’s observations.
Gait analysis maximizes efficiency
PKMAS and Zeno Walkway
As healthcare quickly moves to outcomes which require quantitative analysis, shorter hospital stays and increased function, measuring gait will become more useful in tracking patient progress, functional loss or disability. Comparing data from Quantitative Gait Analysis made before and during intervention can guide protocols and show when the effect of the intervention has plateaued
Protokinetics PKMAS software and Zeno Walkway can PROVIDE DATA TO:
- Quantify gait impairments to create intervention plans and goals for patients
- Pre- vs. Post-surgical gait function: Track progress through recovery
- Quantify gait with various assistive devices to determine optimal conditions at various recovery stages
- Track surgical effects on gait function
