What are the advantages of longterm patient monitoring with sensor insoles?

Moticon OpenGo sensor insoles can be of great help monitoring gait. The built- in smart recording feature collects data when you walk and stops if you rest or sit. This makes it possible that you do up to two weeks non stop gait monitoring.

Fracture healing can be monitored with long-term gaitanalysis

Long-term gait monitoring has proven to be a successful method for determining adherence to prescription regimes for trauma patients, such as those with fractures or ruptures. Full scope gait profiles, including loading patterns, timing, and spatial parameters such as stride length, are significant indicators of gait abnormalities and asymmetries. Moticon OpenGo provides an innovative long-term gait analysis and monitoring solution to healthcare providers.

Non-intrusive sensor insoles provide invaluable long-term gait insights

One of the advantages of our gait monitoring solution is that it is non-intrusive, making it a perfect long-term monitoring solution. Our sensor insole package accurately captures data on loading patterns, timing, and spatial parameters, providing a full scope gait profile that is invaluable in identifying and monitoring abnormalities and asymmetries. With its long-term monitoring capabilities and advanced features, OpenGo is a game-changing technology that is set to transform the way healthcare providers monitor and manage gait disorders.

Effective home-based therapy for knee injuries using Moticon sensor insoles

Let’s have a look at a few examples: The anterior cruciate ligament in the knee can tear and increase the risk of joint wear. To prevent this, there is a therapy where one learns to walk differently. One should shift the weight of the foot more to the inside while walking. So far, this therapy has only been conducted in the laboratory. Now, it was examined with Moticon sensor insoles whether the therapy can also be done from home. It has been shown that the therapy from home works just as well as the one in the laboratory. Additionally, it was found that the training leads to a different load on the knee joint and thus less wear (1).

Wireless sensor insoles and acoustic feedback show promise in treating knee osteoarthritis

Long-term gait monitoring can also be a very effective method for treating knee osteoarthritis through sensor insoles and acoustic feedback. The „Knee Adduction Moment“ (KAM) is measured to determine how evenly weight is distributed on the knee joint, as uneven distribution can worsen knee osteoarthritis. Participants were trained to change their gait pattern and distribute weight more evenly on the knee (2). The method was successful and a promising option for treating knee osteoarthritis. After the training, participants were able to perform the newly learned gait pattern without acoustic feedback and still showed a reduction in KAM. The wireless insole is a promising tool for gait modification to reduce KAM.

Long-term gait analysis as an effective tool for hip fracture patients

According to a study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), long-term gait analysis has proven to be also an effective tool for monitoring the rehabilitation of patients with hip fractures. The study found that long-term monitoring and feedback on gait quality promoted an improvement in walking ability and faster rehabilitation.(3)

The future of gait monitoring: Sensor insoles for managing gait disorders

In conclusion, long-term gait monitoring has become an indispensable tool for healthcare providers to monitor and manage gait disorders in patients. With its ability to provide full scope gait profiles and non-intrusive sensor insole packages, OpenGo is a game-changing technology that is set to transform the way healthcare providers monitor and manage gait disorders in patients.

Flexible operating modes offer convenient and intelligent data collection and analysis

OpenGo sensor insoles offer a variety of operating modes to record or transmit user data in different situations and can be easily used for long-term gait monitoring. These benefits are included:

  • Live Capture allows users to transmit their data in real time. This means that the data from the sensor insoles are transmitted directly to another unit, such as a smartphone or computer, during use. This way, the user can monitor and analyze their data immediately.
  • Recording, on the other hand, offers the option to store data on the onboard memory of the insoles, so that users can download the data later. This is a great option for users who want to analyze their data offline or do not have the ability to transmit their data in real time.
  • Smart Recording is another operating mode that integrates intelligence directly into the insoles. It automatically detects when the user is active and starts, stops, and resumes recordings to collect valuable data. This is achieved through the pattern recognition feature, which allows the insoles to understand the user’s behavior and adjust data collection accordingly.

The different operating modes of the sensory insoles offer users more flexibility in use and allow them to collect and analyze their data in the most convenient way for them.
