Technologies and techniques that have evolved to aid in the assessment of human locomotion and some of the difficulties associated with the clinical application of quantitative gait analysis are examined. The parameters used for the clinical description of gait are outlined, and examples of application of clinical gait analysis are listed. Problems encountered in measuring and assessing gait patterns are discussed. Some commercially available motion measurement systems are described. Future… CONTINUE READING
