This state-of-the-art technology captures movements within 1/1000 of a second, giving an extremely accurate picture of your stride. A gait analysis is a powerful tool in understanding your natural movement patterns and how a particular injury might be affecting your function.
Optojump is an integrative measurement and analysis system that gathers precise, objective data to test an athlete’s ability and level of physical fitness. Optojump uses a combination of video cameras with a LED transmitting system to capture movements within 1/1000 of a second.
The sensors allow for impeccable accuracy in measuring parameters such as power, energy, vertical and horizontal distance, rhythm, contact time, flight time, and much more. The use of a dual-camera system makes it easy to review and track movements, freeze a frame, and create lines and angles on a frame-by-frame basis
All of the information is then transmitted to a computer where the data is processed, analyzed, and ultimately used in developing a specific and customized training program to help an athlete reach his or her specific goals. The system stores these results, which makes it possible to compare future progress.
With such an integrative system, a Finish Line physical therapist can easily use Optojump to take athletes through a variety of jumping, reaction time, stability and plyometric tests in addition to a regular gait and running analysis. Optojump’s ability to measure such a wide range of tasks gives the physical therapist a comprehensive overview of how a client naturally moves and how a particular injury might be affecting his or her function.
