G-Walk Gait Analysis

Complimentary from Orthocare America

What is gait analysis?


Gait analysis is the systematic study of animal locomotion, more specific as a study of human motion, using the eye and the brain of observers, augmented by instrumentation for measuring body movements, body mechanics, and the activity of the muscles. Gait analysis is used to assess, plan, and treat individuals with conditions affecting their ability to walk. It is also commonly used in sports biomechanics to help athletes run more efficiently and to identify posture-related or movement-related problems in people with injuries.


This process typically would require the use of a laboratory with thousands of dollars worth of analytical equipment to accurately evaluate your patients needs...

BTS G-WALK is the ideal solution to treat pathologies related to gait disorders.


BTS G-WALK is a wireless system consisting of an inertial sensor composed by a triaxial accelerometer, a magnetic sensor, and a triaxial gyroscope that positioned on L5 allows a functional gait analysis.The system extrapolates from the data acquired all the spatial-temporal gait parameters required to perform a diagnosis or to define a training strategy.


BTS G-WALK is an intuitive and easy-to-use solution to obtain accurate, objective and quantitative data.

The quick to execute tests that do not require any subject’s preparation, together with the automatic report generation make BTS G-WALK suitable for a wide range of applications: prevention, diagnosis and follow-up of rehabilitative or pharmacological intervention.


The BTS G-WALK allows Orthocare America Technicians to quickly analyze your patients gait with nothing more than the G-WALK belt and a laptop. The results provide evidence based medicine for insurance companies who would otherwise argue against a prescribed orthotic or prosthetic.
