- Test Metrics: Ambulation Time, Cadence, Velocity
- Gait: Single pass, multi-pass, gait initiation, dual tasking, assistive device use, timed up and go (TUG).
- Static: Quiet standing, eyes closed, tandem stance
Statistical data for the gait measurements include: Sample size, Mean, Left/right ratios, Standard deviation, Coefficient of variation
The ProtoKinetics Zeno™ Walkway detects pressure data during gait, balance, and other human movement protocols. Available in a variety of widths and lengths and with a durable design, it can meet the requirements of your facility and protocols, can travel between facilities, or be installed permanently.
The Zeno Walkway features:
- 16-level pressure sensing pad with dual control and circuitry inside a unique low-profile housing
- 2- or 3-layer framework reduces sensor damage and edge curling
- Pressure sensor embedded in base layer, surrounded by a beveled edge
- Smooth transition onto the carpet or floor
- Middle pressure sensing layer contains 0.4” square pressure sensors
- Calculations can be easily exported to text or Excel spreadsheet.
After data collection, the clinician can easily review the collected data and videos, alongside custom visuals and temporal, spatial and pressure values.
