Neurology

In order to provide the best treatment, identify the potential of rehabilitation and recovery, and plan the most suitable therapeutic strategy, a thorough assessment of locomotion and functional activities must be undertaken. Our solutions facilitate and allow quantitative measurements for various of these assessments applicable for any neurological conditions. Data interpretation and normative data are specific for the following conditions:

Parkinson’s Disease (PD)
null

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease affecting more than 1% of the population over the age of 60. It is mainly characterized by a movement control disorder that impairs quality of life. Symptoms are recognizable by slow movements (akinesia), rigidity (hypertonia), and involuntary tremors.

It is essential to evaluate locomotion disorders in order to propose the most suitable therapeutic strategy. We propose easy and quantified clinical assessments that can be used in clinics and at home. Interpretation of results is based on normative data specific to patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease.

Our goals

null

Promote an early diagnosis and better follow-up of Parkinson's desease

Provide home-based and real-life assessments

Enhance the adjustment of therapeutic strategies

Spatiotemporal parameters affected

null
null

Speed

Walking speed is reduced
null

Variability

Walking variability is increased.
null

Stride length

Stride length is reduced
null

Double support

Double support and stance time are increased
null

U-turns

Cadence decreases during U-turns and number of steps increases
null

Sit-to-stand

Sit-to-stand transfer is slower with a reduced mobility of trunk
Stroke
null

Stroke is the leading cause of non-traumatic disability in adults. Two-thirds of survivors suffer from walking disorders and are limited in their daily-life activities. Optimizing the independance in walking and transfers are one of the main objectives in the care of these patients. It is essential to access these daily life functions to understand the potential for recovery and to adapt the therapeutic strategies.

Our clinical assessments are fast, reliable, easy to use and can be performed in clinical centers and at home. The interpretation of the results is based on normative data specific to hemiplegic syndrome following stroke.

Our goals

null

Better estimation and follow-up of motor recovery potential

Enable a better adaptation of therapeutic strategies

Facilitate the return to home with ecological and home-based assessments

null

Balance

Balance is impaired. Risk of falling is increased.
Multiple Sclerosis
null

Multiple sclerosis is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects perceptual and motor cognitive functions. The quality of life is often affected by walking disorders and important fatigue. The role of rehabilitation is to improve or maintain walking abilities and independence in daily activities.

Assessments of locomotion and functional activities are essential to adjust therapeutic strategies (medication and rehabilitation) over time. Our assessments are fast, reliable, easy to use and can be performed in clinical centers and at home. The interpretation of the results is based on normative data specific to population with multiple sclerosis.
