Winner of the 2017 IMAGINE Challenge for innovative walking-visualization tool

Gait Up is a winner of the IMAGINE Challenge for innovative walking-visualization tool organized by FAU (Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg). We propose a gait walking visualization tool of the gait sequences based on inertial sensor recordings in real-time (embedded in the Physilog®5 sensor). This unique tool detects the gait phases (foot-flat, heel-off, toe-off, pre-swing, mid-swing, pre-,…

Gait parameters analysis of children with cerebral palsy using different Physilog® sensor location

The Laboratory of kinesiology Willy Taillard, University of Geneva, the Paediatric Neurology and Neurorehabilitation Unit of the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) and the Laboratory of Movement Analysis an Measurement of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) assessed the spatio-temporal gait parameters of children with cerebral palsy using different sensor location. The aim of this study was to compare the errors of spatio-temporal parameters computation using three wearable systems…

Gait Analysis, the future of early-screening of Alzheimer?

Gait Up was at CHUV Lausanne to propose all seniors to get their own gait evaluation at the World Alzheimer’s Day. The Gait Analysis system, using only wearable foot-worn sensors, is currently used in clinical routine evaluation by physiotherapists for screening patients objectively.   Read more about how gait analysis paremeters are good predictors for early signs of Alzheimer’s disease! Reference: Slow walking…

Ultra-Trail Runners’ Performance Analysis with Physilog® sensors by the Institute of Sport Sciences of the University of Lausanne (ISSUL)

Discover the results of the Institute of Sport Sciences of the University of Lausanne (ISSUL) analyzing Ultra-Trail Runner’s Performance, during theTor des Géants, an ultra-trail race (of 332.5km with 24’000m change in elevation) in Valle d’Aosta (IT). This study aimed to characterize the activity of ultra-trail runners by combining data from their personal experiences with physical measurement indicators…

Lausanne University Hospital measures upper limb function in children with hemiparesis with Physilog® sensors

A collaborative research between Paediatric Neurology and Neurorehabilitation Unit of the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) and the Laboratory of Movement Analysis an Measurement of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) measured upper limb function in children with hemiparesis with 3D inertial sensors. Upper limb assessments in children with hemiparesis rely on clinical measurements, which despite standardization are prone to error. The…
