Introduction

Human gait depends on a complex interplay between the nervous, musculoskeletal and cardiorespiratory systems. It is an integral part of our daily locomotion and a key health indicator. Age, personality, mood and sociocultural factors influence an individual's gait pattern. Gait disorders may lead to falls, injury and reduced quality of life. It is important for rehabilitation professionals to be able to measure and analyse human gait. In this course, the basic terminology and parameters of gait are discussed.

Aims

This course aims to pave the way for you to understand the various definitions and terminology of gait.
