  • gait lab info replies

    Thanks to all who responded to my query on gait and/or motion analysis labs
    around the United States. My responses ranged from web addresses and lists
    of possible labs to checking conference participant lists from several
    different meetings. If anyone has any additional info please sent it to me.

    Thanks again

    Here is the original query:

    Sorry to bother everyone about something trivial but I have been trying to
    find a listing of gait labs (clinical and/or research) in the United States.
    I am a graduate student in biomechanics and will be finishing my thesis this
    semester. I am interested in job oppurtunities in biomechanics,
    specifically gait labs or sports medicine clinics, for a master's entry
    level position. I have logged many hours on the internet and in the library
    trying to find gait labs around the country. I have found several but I'm
    sure there are quite a few more. If anyone has info about a database or
    list of gait labs I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance and I will post
    any replies.

    Off the top of my head, I'm aware of the following gait labs:
    Ohio State University
    Cleveland Clinic Foundation
    Penn State University
    University of Virginia
    Children's Hospital, San Diego
    Siskin Hospital, Chattanooga Tennessee
    Children's Memorial Hospital, Chicago
    Southern Illinois University
    Newington Children's Hospital, Connecticut
    Helen Hayes Hospital
    Gillette Children's Hospital
    Children's Hospital of Alabama, Birmingham
    University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio

    Be aware that many are called Motion Analysis Labs, as opposed to Gait
    Labs. I can provide contacts and addresses for most of the above if you
    need them. I'm curious to see the complete list.
    Best wishes,

    I know of one in Springfield Illinois at the Memorial Hospital there. =20
    I worked as an engineering intern there in the summer of '95.

    Please forward your compiled list to me, if possible.

    ************************************************** **
    (There is a list of current subscribers to the clinical gait listserv on
    there web site or if you would like a list contact me --Kevin Ford)

    Shouldn't take you long to go through and pick out the ones in the US (those
    ending in edu or gov or com).

    Best wishes,

    hi kevin,

    this is not altogether what you are looking for, however, you may find one
    or two "new" leads here.

    You might try contacting the North American Society of Gait and
    Clinical Movement Analysis. The membership chairperson is Susan Sienko
    Thomas. Her email about a year ago was: I don't
    know if a list of labs is readily available but many of the members work
    in gait labs that would be identified in their addresses.
