Gait Analysis

Gait Analysis

Gait Analysis techniques allow measuring biomechanical movement performed by the subject when walks determining joint angles and forces involved in the movement.

3D kinematic and kinetic analysis using motion capture systems provide a detailed description of normal a patological gait.

Gait Analysis involves the identification of a number of events that occur during the gait cycle, defined as the time interval between certain recurring events when walking, typically between a left foot contact with the ground and when right foot comes into contact with the ground again. The gait cycle is divided for each foot in stance phase (when the foot is on the ground) and a flight phase (when it is in the air).

Using motion capture you can know the value of each joint flexion to compare normal and pathological gait, evaluate patient's progress or assess the effectiveness of treatments.
