New Software version 1.7: OptoGait becomes 2D!


OptoGait2D, Video Feedback, First Step Video Popup, and many other new features for this year-end release


The new software version could have been called 2.0, as it is rich in new and improved features. Please refer to the relevant sections for in-depth topical descriptions.

New Features

Patient Module

  • The 'Foot Width [LEDs]' parameter has been added (necessary for the 2D, but not for the other test types); with 2D systems, the <Acquire Foot> function records the length and width parameters.
  • Bug fix of the patient import routine with Excel/xml file data errors

Test Module

  • New test type called '2D Gait Test' (click here for further information)
  • New 'GaitR IN filter' and 'GaitR OUT filter' secondary parameters (click here for further information)
  • It is possible to have a second window (usually in full-screen mode on a second monitor, but also available as a popup window on the main screen) showing core parameters of the current test (click here for further information)
  • In run and gait tests the possibility has been added to preview the first step shown for N seconds (to decide if the starting foot should be confirmed or changed; click here for further information)
  • Now it is possible to use a variable treadmill speed, if the treadmill supports a real-time speed indication; at present available only for Woodway treadmill (in the speed combo box choose 'From Woodway treadmill')

Results Module

  • The zoom control has been eliminated from the graphs, but it is still possible to increase them using the 'Show N Data' command

    • Now it is possible to measure distance in LEDs also on the Y bars (CTRL+double click)
    • A graphical grid and the (10-step) sensor amount have been added 
    • Click here for a summary of all operations possible on the bar/footprint graph
