Dear Biomec-L subscriber,

I apologize for importuning with a primitive subject.

I would like to know if studies exist about the reduction of costs in the rehabilitation process with the use of three-dimensional gait analysis.

This subject is important because an elementary error is committed by some centers in Brazil (for administrators and physicians): the price of gait exam is restricted just to expenses generated by the laboratory (equipment depreciation, wages, consumption material, etc), thus, the laboratory is always evaluated with an element of hight cost (!) and, many times, dificitary (!) by the institution.

Thank you very much for your attention.
Best regards,
