Optimize Therapy with Stride Smart Gait Analytics

Stride Smart for AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmills® amplifies the power of precision unweighting therapy with real-time, intuitive, objective data assessment. By integrating gait analytics and pain recording with AlterG unweighting technology, Stride Smart enables you to harness key objective measures and optimize rehab in a wide variety of clinical applications. Easily, intelligently, and on the fly.

Stride Smart is integrated with built-in video monitoring.

Weight Bearing Symmetry Section

Improves balance control and reduces risk of pain and joint degeneration from overuse in the unaffected leg.

Step Length Symmetry

Improves symmetry for increased step length, better walking speed, more efficient gait, and reduced fall risk.

Stance Time Symmetry

Helps patients correct asymmetries to achieve increased step length, walking speed, and improved stance time.

Cadence

Improvements can lead to faster gait, better mobility, and improved health.

Pain Recording

Correlating gait and unweighting with patient-reported pain scores helps establish optimal parameters for therapy.
