8th East Coast Clinical Gait Conference
Hosted by:Orthopedic Biomechanics Laboratory
Mayo Clinic/Mayo Foundation
Rochester, MN

May 5-9, 1993

Many of the past participants in The East Coast Clinical Gait Conference and
the West Coast Clinical Gait Conference have joined together in an effort to
share common interests and problems. As a result, this conference has
experienced impressive growth over the last few years. Participants have come
from all segments of the USA, from Canada, and even Europe. This year we look
forward to continued participation from all regions as we move from regional
meetings to a combined North American Gait Conference.

We will be pleased to receive original abstracts in the biomechanics of human
movement with emphasis on gait. Please use the following format for preparation
of abstracts. To assure the highest quality available, please submit material
via mail only. Abstracts will be reproduced as received.

All abstracts concerning gait and gait analysis are welcome. Special
consideration will be given to abstracts that illustrate unique uses of gait
analysis, clear and concrete benefits of gait analysis that cannot be obtained
by other means, and abstracts that provide a vision of the future of gait
analysis such as new equipment and techniques.
