What We Measure

By combining AI and our sensor data we have developed a clinical-grade wearable that produces a suite of high-accuracy gait and performance metrics.

Walking

– Cadence
– Distance Travelled
– Stride Length & Stride Time
– Stance & Swing Time
– Single & Double Support Time
– Gait Asymmetries
– Total Load & Intensity
– Load Asymmetry

Running

– Speed (CoM and at the feet)
– Cadence
– Stride Length
– Stride Time
– Ground Contact Time
– Peak Acceleration/Deceleration
– Gait Asymmetries
– Total Load & Intensity
– Load Asymmetry

Jumping

– Jump Height/Distance
– Reactive Strength
– Jumping Asymmetries
– Total Load & Intensity
– Load Asymmetry
