MIE Gait Analysis System

A unique, easy and economical system for providing instantaneous gait analysis

The MIE Gait Analysis System is a unique and economical system providing instantaneous analysis of gait which can be used anywhere and requires no specialised operator training.

By significantly reducing costs and minimizing the delay before usable data is obtained, routine gait analysis becomes a clinical reality

  • Needs no special laboratory facilities -
    Can Be used outdoors
  • Data can be transmitted > 150m with no trailing wires to the computer
  • Simple and quick to operate, a typical test time is 15 minutes
  • Provides instantaneous analysis of gait for single or several steps
  • Data can be stored on disk and results may be printed for patient notes

Features

Analysis Includes

  • Flexion and extension of hip,
    knee and ankle joints
  • Heel and toe ground contact times
  • Plots of knee angle against hip angle
  • Index of bilateral asymmetry for each variable
  • Successive steps may be averaged or displayed separately

Unique Features

  • Reusable heel and toe contact switches provide numeric and graphic information of cadence parameters
  • The system can be used with or without ankle goniometer
