CMAX including Forceplate

Extremely easy to use clinical gait analysis for rehab purposes

CMAX is a turnkey solution for 2 dimensional gait analyses. This complete solution for video gait analysis is especially developed to use in a clinical setting and contains hardware as well as software. The combination of the hardware (video, force plate and potential EMG) ensures that the required data for gait analysis can be collected, while the software combines all the data and contains some tools for easy analysis. Gait analysis is mainly used in rehabilitation and orthopedics to evaluate gait, determine the best treatment and evaluate the treatment.

The system is optimally designed for 2D video gait analysis of human lower extremities and trunk for e.g.

  • children with cerebral palsy

  • people with acquired brain impairment like CVA / stroke

  • neuromuscular diseases like Polyomelites, Multiple sclerosis, Duchenne disease etc.

  • fitting of ortheses and protheses  

The system contains:

  • workstation with large LCD screen, keyboard and mouse

  • pre-installed software

  • licenses

  • cables

  • frontal: first camera with lens and tripod or wallmount

  • sagital: second camera with lens and tripod or wallmount

  • forceplate

  • calibration frame

The system can be easily extended and synchronised with an additional camera, EMG and an additional forceplate.

Minimum specs: windows 7, 4GB RAM, i7 processor, resolution of 1920x1080.
Yes, EMG data can be analyzed as raw signals as well as normalized.
A second force plate is possible, but only from one force plate at the time the force vector can be shown. The M-wave is shown for both force plates.
No, norm values of normalized EMG are currently not available in the software.
The force plate data will be presented as M-wave and as force vector.
The CMAX cameras have a maximum of 50 fps.
Yes, it possible to compare two recordings from the same trial as well as two recordings from different trials.
Yes, Due to the fact that the scientific research on the spread of Covid-19 is not yet conclusive Lode recommends to disinfect and clean all Lode products and their accessories (cuffs, heart rate belts, SpO2 sensors, handgrips/rails, touchscreens etc) that are in contact with the patient and or the medical personnel with a standard disinfectant as used in the hospital before and after every patient, with attention and care!

Since these agents are sometimes aggressive it might be advisable to check the effect on sensitive surfaces, like cushioning on non-visible areas. Lode will not take responsibility for discoloration due to these agents.
