Clinical Gait Analysis 7,5 Credits

The goal of this course is to use three dimensional gait systems to collect, analyse and diagnose gait pathologies in a variety of pathological conditions. Students will gain experience in computerised modeling of gait and in interpreting the outcomes of gait analysis to facilitate clinical decision making.

Course Contents

  • Review of normal and pathological gait kinematics and kinetics
  • Interpreting the results of instrumented gait analysis
  • Gait analysis systems including three dimensional gait analysis, EMG and pressure measurement
  • Practical use of gait analysis systems
  • Applied gait analysis case studies
