A new continuous gait analysis system for ankle fracture aftercare

Background Correct aftercare following lower extremity fractures remains a controversial issue. Reliable, clinically applicable weightbearing recommendations have not yet been defined. The aim of the current study was to establish a new gait analysis insole during physical therapy aftercare of ankle fractures to test patients’ continuous, longterm compliance to partial weight-bearing restrictions and investigate whether […]

Concurrent validity and reliability of wireless instrumented insoles measuring postural balance and temporal gait parameters

Background The OpenGo seems promising to take gait analysis out of laboratory settings due to its capability of long-term measurements and mobility. However, the OpenGo’s concurrent validity and reliability need to be assessed to determine if the instrument is suitable for validation in patient samples. Methods Twenty healthy volunteers participated. Center of pressure data were […]
