The Quintic Automatic Gait Report has been developed in order to produce detailed analysis of an individual’s gait in an applied setting.

Number of Cameras: The gait report is designed for use with up to FIVE cameras (front, back, right, left and a "zoomed in" back view) in order to provide a full and comprehensive report. The gait report can be created from fewer cameras than this, but the full data set will not be produced. It is possible to produce a report for either the right or the left side view individually. However, if capturing video from the front and/ or back view, you must also have the RIGHT side view camera in order to mark the start of each stride and for the key time events to be calculated. However, it is possible to caluclate the Alpha / Beta Angles from just one video file uploaded into the report.

Analysis Options & Number of Trials:

Option 1. Treadmill Analysis: Capture a single set of videos containing 10 strides in one recording.
Option 2. Over Ground Analysis: Capture 5 separate sets of videos, one for each stride/trial.

Anatomical Marking: To generate a complete report, reflective markers need to be positioned on the below anatomical landmarks:

To generate a complete report, reflective markers need to be positioned on the following anatomical landmarks: 31 Markers in total

 

6.4mm Markers:

7.9 mm Markers:

7.9 mm Markers:  
 
  • 5th Met x 2
  • Ankle x 2
  • Toe x 2
  • Beta x 4
  • Alpha x 4
  • Iliac Crest x 2
  • Patella x 2
  • Distal end of tibia x 2
  • Pelvis x 2
  • Spine x 3
  • Hip x 2
  • Knee (Left)
  • Knee (Right)
  • Shoulder (Left)
  • Shoulder (Right)
 

One high-speed camera (per view) is used to capture the movement with the reflective markers placed in the appropriate anatomical positionsl. Each video/trial is then digitised in the Quintic Biomechanics software and the smoothed data exported to Microsoft Excel.

Once this process is complete, the PDF report can be created using the relevant bolt-on Quintic Automatic Report software. Basic information to be included in the report (e.g. name, height, weight, DOB, injury history, running shoe...) iis to be entered manually and a profile created for that individual.

The relevant Excel files are then loaded into the report software and the PDF report is automatically generated, including the calculation of key time events and variables. This means that time does not need to be spent calculating the key variables and attempting to determine where the key frames are in the video.

Report Output:

The Quintic Automatic Gait Report includes graphs, diagrams and statistics for following:

  1. Stride Characteristics: Step Length, Stride Time, Stance / Swing Phase, Time to Knee over Ankle, Time to Maximum Knee Flexion & Time to Toe off
  2. Horizontal & Vertical Velocities: Hip, Thigh, Knee, Shank, Ankle & Foot
  3. Angular Displacements & Velocities: Hip, Knee, Ankle, Foot
  4. Shoulder & Pelvis Lines
  5. Intersection Angles: Spine/Shoulder, Spine/Pelvis & Pronation/Supination
  6. Thigh & Shank Angles

You also have the option to upload still image snapshots taken within the Quintic Biomechanics software in order to provide visual feedback and emphasise a particular point of the individual’s gait.
