The hardest part of gait analysis has always been providing a stable basis for tracking the pelvis.
Now Codamotion has introduced a new lightweight, fully integrated pelvic frame for the purpose. It can be used in gait protocols using leg wands or clusters, depending on the anatomical model being preferred.
It uses a special elasticated belt material developed originally within Loughborough University to provide a firm base on the pelvis. The frame itself fixes onto the belt once it is secure and is adjustable over a wide range of pelvic widths.
For more information, see our product page.
The Pelvic Frame contains 6 integrated markers (2 on each wand and 2 on the tail); and all of the electronics are embedded in the device. It has been to provide tracking according to the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) recommendations.
The Pelvic frame can be purchased as a separate item (GAIT-PELVIC) or as part of one of our gait wand sets.
The device is resizable and can be used for adults and children. The optional tail (GAIT-SACRAL) is detachable and will dislodge itself in case of a fall.
