Gait analysis is a powerful way to quickly gather and analyze large amounts of information about your patients/clients that is critical for taking corrective to significantly improve their quality of life.
Why Assess Gait?
- Most people walk in a unique way, so there are large amounts of normative data for each patient.
- Walking is a uniquely human activity.
- Walking is a dynamic movement requiring stringent assessments to guide clinical decisions.
- Walking is a baseline. If a patient can’t control the movement at a slow speed it is unlikely to improve when the patient adds speed.
