G-WALK

Wearable inertial sensor for motion analysis
Discover

Simple, fast and accurate measurement of any movement

G-WALK introduces a new approach to motion analysis: a special wireless sensor applied to the patient allows the assessment of their walking, running and jumping performance, and to conduct clinical tests such as the “Timed Up and Go” and “6-Minute Walk Test”.

These assessments, essential in the context of rehabilitation, help physicians and specialists evaluate the patient’s condition and quantify the efficacy of rehabilitation treatments or therapies.

G-WALK provides all the essential data for the clinical analysis of a patient in just a few seconds. The six included tests can be easily conducted and the results immediately compared with the normal ranges. The integrated protocols offer the possibility to perform complete and in-depth analyses.

Why choose it

A powerhouse of technology

A powerhouse of technology

We have enclosed 4 inertial platforms in just a few cubic centimetres. This architecture improves the accuracy of acquisition, eliminating the error tolerance. The system guarantees 8 hours of operating autonomy and an unlimited range of action thanks to its internal memory.
Accurate and reliable data

Accurate and reliable data

G-WALK provides objective, accurate and quantifiable data, applying specific analysis protocols validated by numerous clinical studies. The indexes of reference are the result of 3 years of research. The results can be immediately compared with the normal ranges.
A new approach to functional motion analysis

A new approach to functional motion analysis

Walking parameters are essential in assessing orthopaedic and neurological patients. G-WALK allows all specialists to determine the most effective treatment and monitor its results.
Light and compact wireless inertial system

A wearable motion analysis laboratory

G-WALK is worn by the patient thanks to a special belt. The patient is free to walk, run and jump without any obstructions. The sensor transmits the data via Bluetooth to the connected computer; at the end of the analysis, an automatic report is displayed with the parameters calculated during the test.
