The WalkTest app runs a 2 or 6 minute walk test (2MWT, 6MWT), which consists of a person walking back and forth on a straight track of set length for 2 or 6 minutes. Following the test, biomechanical reports on step parameters, cadence, pelvis acceleration, and symmetry are immediately available. PDF reports can be generated.
This app uses scientifically proven methods that provides useful information to help understand how a person moves and their functional capacity. Details on the methods are in the publication:
