h/p/cosmos gaitway 3D Instrumented Treadmill Ergometer

h/p/cosmos gaitway 3D Instrumented Treadmill Ergometer

SKU: cos3000201

The new gaitway 3D is a joint design by h/p/cosmos and Arsalis. It measures the ground reaction forces and torques in three directions and comes in three different sizes: each size is optimized for a range of speeds.

The gaitway 3D offers a rigid construction to record optimal quality signals. The functionalities include a patient weighing scale, a recording of the ground reaction forces at rates up to 10 kHz, left and right force measurement for the vertical force during walking and an extensive list of biomechanical parameters of normal and pathological gaits.

Available for purchase upon enquiry.

gaitway 3D Instrumented Treadmill

The h/p/cosmos® gaitway 3D Instrumented Treadmill is different and consists of one large single platform that does not have a split belt. It is available in different running deck sizes like 150/50, 170/65 and 190/65cm.

As running consist of single contact phases (just one foot on the ground at a time), the treadmill is perfect to measure forces also at higher speeds. The ample running surface encourages a natural running position. Moving slightly forward or sideward does not affect the measurement accuracy.

Also when walking on the treadmill, the subjects do not need to worry about the position. They are not required to place the heel on the front belt, nor are they forced to hit the right belt with the right foot and vice versa. When walking on a single platform, the load cells will measure a sum of left and right limb forces, but only in the double stance phase. A dedicated algorithm can decompose this sum. The procedure was published some years ago and improved in subsequent years (Davis & Cavanagh, 1993; Dierick et al, 2004; Meurisse et al, 2016, Raison et al, 2005). This algorithm is validated now for both healthy and clinical gait and published in highly rated journals.
