The GaitRate App is a mobile app replacement for the traditional stopwatch method of gait speed measurement typically used home visit assessments and research studies. The app returns time, a calculated gait speed measurement (based on selected course length), and survival estimates for older patients (65-95), based on published research. The GaitRate App is intended to provide health professionals and researchers with a tool to easily measure short-distance gait speed in their practice and compare the results against the published norms.
The GaitRate App provides three app modes for gait speed measurement and estimations related to published norms for individuals 65 to 95 years of age.\n\n
1. Measure Mode: Measures gait speed in meters per second for different short course lengths (3-5 meters or 9-15 feet).
2. Measure + Estimate Mode: Measures gait speed and provides median (average) years-of-life remaining estimates. For this mode, estimates require age (65-95), gender, and usual gait speed over a four-meter course.\n\n
3. Estimator Mode: If you have a short-distance gait speed measurement, this mode allows entry of that gait speed, along with age (65-95), and gender to get median (average) years-of-life remaining estimates.

Measurements are started and stopped using either volume button to allow eyes-free operation or by pressing the screen in the designated area. The resulting time and gait speed, based on your selected course length are returned in meters per second.
