Recently I came across a comment from a review of a research proposal on
gait analysis. It was a general statement made by the reviewer in
relation to a proposal to improve current gait analysis technology to be
used in a clinical practice. The comment was, and I quote "Gait labs in
the world are floundering." I am wondering if this comment is a widely
accepted view. I would like to hear from members of this list as to (1)
whether you have come across such comments and (2) your opinion on
whether this is true or not. I feel that a discussion here will help
develop a consensus either way.
In the usual way, I will compile the responses and post it on the list.
