Gaitometer | Gait Therapy

Professional gait therapy is often required immediately following a serious injury or surgical procedure involving the lower body. The Gaitometer is designed to provide a supplemental tool for long-term gait therapy that is associated with an abnormal gait cadence that may develop following an injury or surgery.

The Gaitometer is an application for the iPhone and iPod touch that uses the built-in accelerometers in these devices to detect and analyze the basic step cadence symmetry of the user. Immediate audible and visual feedback are used to alert the user of the gait irregularity, and allow the user to modify their current gait cadence to a more normal pattern.

The use of the Gaitometer is not a substitute for individualized gait analysis and therapy by a trained professional, but is an additional tool that can be useful in obtaining and maintaining a symmetric and healthy gait.
