gaitQ Product Evaluation

We are undertaking a product evaluation study for the gaitQ device. The device collects important movement data and delivers vibrational notifications to the lower leg. The more movement data the device collects, the better it works. We need movement data and user feedback from people with walking difficulties or interested in improving their gait. Our aim is to develop a device that addresses these difficulties and improves mobility.

Duration of the study

The study will start in March 2022 and end in May 2022

Aim of the product evaluation study

Evaluate the performance and usability of an early-stage prototype product.

Participants

We’re looking for volunteers who experience walking difficulties or interested in improving their gait.

Why is this product evaluation study necessary?

This non-interventional data capture study will test if our prototype can be further developed and used to improve walking quality: this is important data that can be used to further refine our product aiming to overcome gait symptoms more effectively and improve walking quality.

What is involved if you are interested in taking part?

If you are interested in taking part in our study then please fill out the contact form below. We will email you more information about the study, and contact you at the time and by the method you choose, to tell you more about the study, answer any questions you may have and ensure the study is appropriate for you. This conversation usually takes about 30 minutes.

If you then choose to take part and are eligible you will be invited to try out our prototype device in the comfort of your own home for a day. The device will be sent to you in the mail, to use at home, and will be accompanied by a set of clear instructions and a return envelope. Our prototype device is designed to be safe for use in the home environment. The gaitQ research team will be able to support you at any time if you have any questions.

We really appreciate your interest as we are reliant on volunteers like yourself to be involved in developing solutions to help people remain active.

Many thanks.

The gaitQ team
