Gait Lab

Jupiter Hospital is one of the few in the country possessing this state of the art technology. Our gait lab is one of few in the country to have full accreditation.

For our patients suffering from current injuries, we rely on gait analysis because:

  • The Gait and Motion Analysis Laboratory at Jupiter Hospital uses state-of-the-art computer technology to capture a 3-D image of a child’s walk.
  • Doctors and therapists use electrodes and reflective markers, which are placed on the child to measure muscle activity and track the movement of body segments. We also measure foot pressure and energy use.
  • We are also the best in the region based in a pediatric hospital. As an accredited lab, we have exhibited the highest level of clinical and technical excellence in movement analysis.
