Introduction

Gait analysis is used by physiotherapists in research and clinical practice and has useful applications in many conditions. Clinically, visual gait analysis using a smartphone or a tablet camera is an easy and quick method but this simplified approach does have limitations.

In this course, you will learn about different methods of instrumented gait analysis, and the related interpretation and clinical applications of the generated data.
