    Subject: [BIOMCH-L] Definition of gait analysis



    Dear all,



    we are currently working on a consensus document about clinical gait
    analysis.



    We would like to know your opinion (references welcome!) about the
    definition of "gait analysis", with particular attention to the aspects
    relevant to the clinic.



    Regards,

    I would say that clinical would indicate that there is some kind of
    pathology or dysfunction that is of concern to the patient that we are
    assessing with a view to resolution. A clinical gait analysis could
    therefore be defined as using optimal evaluation techniques that fulfill the
    objective of discovering what it is in the gait that can be changed to
    rectify the specific problem.
