    For those of us that work in gait analysis this may be of interest:

    :: Clinical Gait Analysis Workshop

    ::: Sponsored
    ::: by:
    :: Frazier Rehab Center's
    :: Gait & Biomechanics Laboratory

    :: Saturday, October 14th, 1995

    ::: at

    ================================================== ===============
    Course Objectives

    -Identify the basic components of gait.
    -Identify the components of a gait laboratory & their function in
    gait analysis.
    -Identify clinical applications of gait analysis for the patient
    with pathology of the foot, ankle, knee & hip.
    -Describe how gait analysis results can guide surgical and
    rehabilitation decision making.
    -Discuss the process of the gait analysis study

    Course Registration

    Gait analysis testing provides a means of objectively quantifying
    the characteristics of a patients's gait or ability to conduct
    activities of daily living. Computerized video-based equipment,
    a force platform and EMG are used to provide quantitative
    information on patient function which cannot be obtained by mere
    observation of a patient's gait.

    Quantitative measures of walking, running, and other activities
    give the clinician the opportunity to analyze and document the
    changes and compensations in gait & other movement patterns due
    to the progress of pathological conditions and to evaluate the
    effects of surgical procedures and rehabilitative techniques.

    This course will provide the clinician with an understanding of
    the components of gait analysis, its benefits and clinical

    CME/CEU: This course has been submitted for approval for 8
    Category I CME's and to the APTA for 8.0 CEU's.

    Lodging: Workshop participants are responsible for making their

    has been set aside at The Inn at Jewish Hospital (Operated by
    Marriot) for a rate of $65/night. The Inn is within walking
    distance of the Jewish Hospital Heart & Lung Conference Center or
    shuttles can provide transportation.

    Travel: Louisville is serviced by most major airlines and The
    Jewish Heart & Lung Conference Center is located just minutes
    away off Interstate 65 in downtown Louisville.

    FEES: Included: registration, course handouts, continental
