How can I install the GaitUp application?
The Gait Up Live application can be installed directly from the Play Store for Android devices or from App Store for iPhones and iPads.
How can I obtain a login for the GaitUp application?
For complete gait measurements, two sensors are used, one fixed on each foot. For running analysis, the sampling frequency of the accelerometer and gyroscope must be set to 256Hz. The range of the accelerometer should be set to +/-16g and the gyroscope range should be +/-2000°/s. The barometer should be activated and record data at 64Hz.
The same sensor configuration can be used for walking analysis. In order to minimize file size and increase battery life, walking measurements can also be recorded at 128Hz for accelerometer and gyroscope sampling frequency and the barometer inactivated.
On which devices can the Gait Up Live application be used ?
The Gait Up Live application can be installed on Android and iOS devices. The application is adapted for phone and tablet screen sizes, however we cannot guarantee that the design will look exactly the same as in the user manual on all devices. The device must have Bluetooth low Energy (BLE) capabilities and for Android the version must be Android 5 or higher.
How should the sensors be attached for gait measurement?
Physilog5 are attached to the feet for walking and running measurements. Use the fixation clip delivered with the system to attach the sensor in the shoe laces or on the outside of the shoerim. The measurement can also be done barefoot, for this attach the elastic straps around the feet and fix the Physilog5 using a sticky velcro or by fixing the clip to the elastic strap.
Do I have access to the raw data of my measurements ?
Yes, you always have the possibility to access the raw data of a recording from the internal memory of the Physilog5 sensor.
What gait tests can be measured with the gait analysis system?
The Gait Up Live application can analyse short recordings from any walk performed on flat surfaces. This includes 20m walk test, 2min walk test or figure of eight test, outside walking and many more. For running analysis, the system can interpret runs on the treadmill or outside with flat surfaces. The mobile device with the Gait Up Live application should stay in proximity to the subject during the entire recording to be able to receive the data from the sensor. It is recommended to limit recordings with the Gait Up Live system to a few minutes.
What sensor configuration should I use for gait measurements?
Using the Gait Up Live application, you don’t need to think about the sensor configuration, the application automatically sets the recording parameters of the Physilog5 when you select either walking or running analysis.
