Free webinar: Navigating a virtual environment using the GRAIL
You are invited to join Motek and Professor Dr Stefan Lüdkte from the University of Rostock for a free webinar on the 20th of September at 14:00 CET.
An innovative use of the GRAIL
Learn about the Motek Gait Realtime Analysis Interactive Lab (GRAIL) in this free webinar “Navigating in a virtually enriched environment – an innovative use of the GRAIL“.
Here Professor Dr Stefan Lüdkte will be presenting a study investigating the effect of spatial disorientation in a virtual environment in younger and older adults, and in patients with dementia. The study uses accelerometric and gait features to predict disorientation in the patients.
About the GRAIL
The Gait Realtime Analysis Interactive Lab (GRAIL) is a dedicated solution for gait analysis and training, creating challenging conditions and virtual environment to improve gait patterns. It is the total package with real-time feedback and user-friendly assessments and applications.
The GRAIL uses an instrumented dual-belt treadmill with pitch and sway, a motion capture system, three video cameras, EMG, and synchronised virtual reality environments.
The treadmill contains a force plate, and the left and right treadmill belt speeds can be controlled separately. This allows a split-belt walking protocol, and advanced gait research applications can mimic tripping or slipping, provoked by sudden belt stops, accelerations, or use of the fast pitch and sway functionality.
