Now at your disposal only one in the Caribbean installed in Santiago de Los Caballeros.

It is an evaluation system oriented to the study of the movement and its effects during a walk.

The system allows simultaneous collection of data and 3D images and in real time. Then, after a proper processing it present the information in clinical and graphic videos compared, that reflect the range of movements and their deviations.

More beyond of origin diagnostic, the quality of information provided facilitates the accurate recognition of the main functional problems and its relationship to the cause that generates it. These elements are of great importance for a proper treatment planning.

Objectives

The objective of this analysis is comprehensive the power to assess and describe the pattern of march in a person, which allows the  specialist or researcher to have more information in order to decide the more appropriate intervention and offering the best tips  on the post-operative treatment recommendations.

It must not be orthopedic reconstructive surgery without previously having made a complete study of the Gait.

In what does it consist?
