Walking Analysis



Importance of Walking

The key to ageing well is maintaining optimal mobility in everyday activities such as taking a stroll. Understanding how you function can mitigate the risk of falling and other incidents. Active Health Walking Analysis uses motion sensors that test your ability to move well. Simply by walking a few steps now, you can instantly analyse your walking speed and stride variability.




Speed - the walking stride velocity is the mean speed of forward walking, calculated in metres per second (m/s). Walking speed is a reliable measure for assessing and monitoring functional status and overall health in a wide range of populations.


Variability - the difference in duration of gait cycle from one cycle to the next. The duration of gait cycle is the time from the initial contact of one foot to the subsequent contact of the same foot.
