Gait & Balance

Portable. Reliable. Sensitive. Valid.

Trusted and utilised by researchers and clinicians worldwide, Mobility Lab provides sensitive, reliable, and valid outcome measures for assessing functional mobility.

Mobility Lab makes it easy to collect, analyse, and store data. Attach sensors to your subject, and instruct them to perform a standardised test. A report is then automatically generated to compare against normative values. This process takes less than five minutes. A number of predefined functional and clinical tests are already programmed with the package, these include:

  • the walk test
  • the Timed Up and Go (TUG) test
  • the instrumented Postural Sway test
  • the modified Clinical Test of Sensory Interaction and Balance (mCTSIB) test
  • the modified Balance Error Scoring System (mBESS) test
  • the 360° Turn test
  • the 5x Sit to Stand test
  • the Stand and Walk (SAW) test

With Mobility Lab you also have the ability to build your own tests and subject groups.

Sensor quantity will determine measures available for recording.
