Medomotion

Are you limping?

Use the Medomotion app, downloaded for free from Google Play or AppStore.

Start the app, place your phone in a waist-bag or in your pocket, and walk. Sensor data is collected and after a walk of at least two minutes, your level of asymmetric walk is estimated and displayed directly on the phone or on the web.

A limping index between 0-100 shows your degree of asymmetric gait. This will help you to easily see if your limping changes over time.

At the same time, you help us improve our gait analysis. Walking data is collected anonymously and you help us improve the analysis!

Instructions

General
Medomotion is the name of the application (in the following called “the app”) which is installed on the mobile phone (a.k.a. smartphone) with operating systems iOS or Android. The app can be found on AppStore or Google Play when searching for the name of the app “Medomotion”.

iPhone users have to use iPhone 4S or later models. Android have to use a mobile phone with Android version 4.3.1 or later.

The results can be viewed on the web using a computer or tablet. The same username and password are used as login on the app and the web.

The app can only be downloaded to a smartphone and it is not intended for collecting data with a tablet. Therefore, it is not possible to download the app on tablets. However, the results may be viewed on the web using a tablet, laptop or similar.

Placement
The mobile phone should primarily be carried in a waist pack worn around the waist and positioned in the front during the whole walking session (exercise). Secondarily the mobile phone can be placed in the left or right front or back pocket of the trousers. It is important that the mobile phone is placed tight to the body and that it doesn’t move/rotate in the pocket. When the app is started it is important to specify where the mobile is located during the exercise to receive a correct result. This is stated in the app when starting an exercise.

Exercise duration and velocity
The app is to be used in connection with taking an outdoor walk with a total active walking time of at least one minute. The walking velocity should be 4 km/h or more. At lower velocities, different app settings are required which is not available in this version of the app.

To analyze the sensor data which is collected requires the walk to consist of at least one minute of active walking. This means that it is possible to stop multiple times during a walk as long as there is at least one minute of active gait data gathered. If the amount of sensor data collected is not enough to calculate a result an error message will be shown. To avoid this it is recommended to have a margin by walking over one minute.

The application will automatically turn of the exercise after 60 minutes of use. This is a feature to prevent the application from continue running if you have forgotten to turn it off after your exercise. The result will not be affected as it is only the gait data generated which is analyzed. Inside the applications settings, it is possible to change the 60 minutes limitation to 120 minutes before it will automatically stop the ongoing exercise.

Treadmill
The app can also be used on a treadmill indoor for Android device and in most cases also iPhone device.

Data upload
We recommend data to be uploaded when a WiFi connection is available depending on your type of mobile data contract. If a WiFi connection is used to upload data there are no charges to your mobile data account.

Battery saving mode
The app is energy optimized (out). Therefore, the mobile phone should not be set on battery saving mode while using the app. The battery saving mode will prevent the app from performing as intended.

Storing exercises
There is no need to upload sensor data immediately after each exercise. Data from several exercises can be stored in the app and uploaded jointly at a convenient time. Please note that uploading several exercises might prolong upload time.

Outside Sweden
The app can be used abroad in the same way as in Sweden although it is not possible to download the app outside Sweden if you are using an Android device. Whereas it is possible if you are using an iPhone and have registered your Apple-Id in Sweden. Tus make sure you have downloaded the app on your mobile phone before traveling abroad.

Date and time of training
It is the date and time set on the mobile phone in use that is logged in the system. If the date and time have been manually set incorrectly this date and time will be registered and displayed in the application and on the web. When traveling across time zones changes in time and date might be reset automatically or manually and the reset date and time will then be reported and logged in the system.

Results on the web
The exercise results can be view on the web. The exercise sessions are listed in chronological order. The results are also displayed graphically for the time period of your choice. Both limping index and number of steps are displayed in the graph in one-hour intervals. That is to say that if you perform more than one exercise session within the same hour a mean value is calculated for the limping index and the number of steps is summarized to a total value. For more information about limping index and functionality go to “Information” on the website.

Print from the web
The exercise results can be printed from the web. The exercise results, both limping index and the number of steps, are presented in a list and graphically for the time period of your choice. The view on your screen can be printed and handed over to your care provider for assessment.

Make sure that at least 1 minute of walking data is available and that you have walked at a minimum velocity of 4 km/h. You may pause several times during the walk, it will not affect the result.

The results vary a lot

The limping index is calculated I relation to where the mobile phone is located. Make sure you correctly indicate where you place the phone before you begin to walk. Also make sure you carry the phone as tightly ass possible to your body. A waist pack or trouser pockets are recommended. If you believe you vary in the way you move during the walk this might account for the variation in the results. The phone should not be carried in large jacket pockets where the phone can move around and rotate. Neither should it be carried in a bag, for instance. It is important that the phone is place closely to the body while measuring.
