Instrumented 3D-gait/-movement analysis

Human movement is enabled by a complex interaction of muscles, bones, joints, tendons and ligaments of the locomotor system. Through the use of state-of-the-art measuring methods, so-called gait analysis systems, these complex dynamic mechanisms can be recorded.

They help, for example, in the analysis of gait abnormalities, decision-making for surgical operations or verifying operative results.

The biomechanical laboratory is a certified member of the section "Grundlagenforschung der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Orthopädie und Orthopädische Chirurgie e.V. (DGOOC)" in the "Netzwerk Muskuloskelettale Biomechanik (MSB-Net)".

Main focus of work gait and movement analysis
  • Kinematic and kinetic 3D-analysis of movement processes by means of 6-camera system (VICON 460, Oxford Metrics) with 3 force measurement platforms (2 AMTI, 1 KISTLER)
  • Foot pressure distribution measurement (EMED platform, ORMES insoles)
  • 2D joint angle measurement with electrogoniometer (Penny & Giles)

Instrumented 3D-gait/-movement analysis

The instrumented gait analysis allows doctors and scientists to exactly record the movements of people. In contrast to the subjective assessment of the gait pattern, where doctors or physiotherapists observe the patient, the computer-aided version provides measurement data which allow an objective evaluation of the gait pattern.

Hip / Knee

Artificial joints should reconstruct as precisely as possible the individual joint anatomy of the patient: This is the only way that patients can enjoy optimum mobility and long-term load capacity.
