BalancedGaitTest is in test and development stage. It must be used under the criteria and responsibility of therapists. Comments that help us to improve the tool are welcome.

Main changes list among versions
– Fix problems to recognize several gait types.
– Now the Test duration can be modified by using the setting “number of cycles to analyze”.
– Now detailed data are sent by Internet to the Private Area where they are showed in a table.
– An important improvement in the algorithm allows to obtain more stable parameters, i.e., when the Test is repeated by the same person in similar conditions the results are similar.
– Now parameters in the diagram correspond with frontal accelerations and the swing phase. Experimentation shows these parameters are relevant to distinguish between pathological and healthy gaits.
– The first functional version of Private Area is available. It includes a printable report that can be delivered to the patient.
– Translations to Spanish and English are completed.
– Updated to Android 8.0
– The user interface design is improved.
– The sound volume is handled from the phone external push button.
– Some problems when sharing the accelerometers with other APPs are solved.
– The user interface has been improved.
– In certain irregular gaits the measures have been improved.
– A new measure, so called, “Dynamical Stability” has been included into the detailed report.
– It has been updated according with the Android 8.1 features.
– Some problems with the launcher icon have been corrected.
– It has been updated to Android version 9.
– A complete shift to a linguistic description of results has been undertaken.
– A monthly subscription has been included to allow the user access to detailed Test results.
– The gait analysis remain the same.
