The APP measures forces on three axes. Frontal, Perpendicular and Transversal.

Symmetry of Forces (SF) measures the difference between the applied forces by each leg. The value 100 means a perfect balance of forces.

Symmetry of Time (ST): measures the difference between the duration of steps by each leg. The value 100 means a perfect balance of durations.

Homogenity of Forces (HF): measures the difference between the applied forces by the same leg in consecutive steps. Value 100 means perfect homogeneity.

Homogenity of Time (HT): measures the difference between the duration of steps by the same leg in consecutive steps. Value 100 means perfect homogeneity.

Power (PW): measures the average power applied by the patient during the Test sesion. To pass the Test, this value must be upper than 80.

Cadence (CD) measures the number of steps per minute. 100 steps/minute is considered enough to pass the Test.
