Assignment

Mid Stance is one of the most important phases of gait to evaluate. Please film a person walking away from you and towards you. Find the midstance phase when the back foot leaves the ground and look for the peak adduction. Measure both the posterior view and measure pelvic drop and anterior view and measure hip adduction. Document on your assessment form and take a screenshot of it and upload. You only need to upload one image.
