The Worlds First "Anytime, Anywhere" Gait Analysis System

Analyze Gait in Free-Living Conditions

Elimiate the need for expensive laboratories, metabolic chambers and treadmills.

Affordable for any Clinic or Practitioner

The IDEEA LifeGait System is a fraction of the cost of traditional gait analysis methods. It will pay for itself very quickly, many times over.

Detect Workers Compensation Fraud

Extremely sophisticated gait analysis can record patients activities as they go about their daily lives for up to 7 days, makes objective workers comp assessment possible.

Unprecedented Ease of Use

Automatic identification and calculation of quantitative gait parameters.

LifeGait can detect/measure walking, running and all kinds of locomotions Portable gait lab-an advancement in biomechanics

The IDEEA LifeGait System


MiniSun introduced a new IDEEA Physical Activity Monitor that is critical for gait analysis, rehab, functional capacity, effect of treatment, and behavior analysis.

The revolutionary LifeGait System is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. When attached to the patient, the entire system is so small it allows for unrestricted movement and continuous recording from a few minutes to several days.

Using LifeGait, gait studies can be performed in virtually any environment. Data can be recorded under natural work or living conditions, allowing for objective, quantitative evaluation of injury level and quality of life.

Supported by NIH grant (No. DK62587), the LifeGait System is the result of one-decade research. According to the NIH reviewer, "a tremendous amount of (physical activity) information can be obtained with a minimally invasive device using extremely sophisticated technology."

LifeGait detects more than 40 types of physical activity (e.g., sitting, standing, walking, climbing stairs, sleeping) and postures with 98.7% accuracy, records amount, intensity and type of body motion, provides 17 types of gait parameters (single limb support, step length, velocity…), performs behavior analysis and physical activity assessment, and plays back in "movies" daily activities in time spans of seconds to days. The software provides details on type, duration, frequency and intensity of physical activity, measures functional capacity, ECG (optional, custom device with IRB approval), endurance, and estimates energy expenditure with 98% accuracy. It also shows in-depth analysis of body motion, speed, distance, power and work in curves, charts, and tables, anytime, anywhere.

"This device is what researchers have been waiting for in decades. Truly astounding!" said Dr. Kuan Zhang of New York Obesity Research Center, Columbia University, after he completed a clinical study validating the IDEEA. The study of his group has been published recently in Obesity Research, the leading journal of its field, in January of 2003.
