Gait Biofeedback - Force Cane

Immediate feedback on weight distribution assists with gait retraining.

Designed and Made in Australia

The nCounters Force Cane provides feedback on weight distribution by using a pressure sensor embedded at the base of the Cane.

The Cane is designed to assist with gait retraining while optimizing walking function, speed and safety.

Immediate feedback encourages the patient to either increase or decrease load through the cane.

Feedback is visual and via vibration through the handle of the Cane.

The Force Cane is appropriate for neurological and orthopaedic conditions.

Feedback

Positive feedback is given as vibration when the weight carried through the cane is between the upper and lower limit values set on the Control Unit. Calibration of the Unit can be done using a set of scales.

A red LED on the Control Unit lights up when weight carried through the cane is in the target range.
