Clinical trials

Currently Balanced Gait Test is undergoing several clinical trials.

Main changes among versions

BalancedGaitTest 0.7:

– 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.

BalancedGaitTest 0.8:

– 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.

BalancedGaitTest 0.9:

– 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.

BalancedGaitTest 0.10:

– 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.

BalancedGaitTest 0.11:

– 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.

BalancedGaitTest 0.12:

– It has been updated according with the Android 8.1 features.
– Some problems with the launcher icon have been corrected.

BalancedGaitTest 0.18:

– 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.

BalancedGaitTest 1.0.10:

– It has been updated to use new possibilities of Android 9. Now it needs Android version 5.1 or higher
– Data base manager has been updated
– Several UI details have been updated
– The gait analysis remain the same

BalancedGaitTest 1.0.20:
– It has been updated to use new possibilities of Android 10
