Gait Analysis Course
to 30 August 2019 4:00pm
Learning to walk and maintaining walking ability are important aspects of human function. Gait analysis is the study of human walking. Many universities, hospitals and private institutions have instrumentation to measure walking but there are few courses available to teach clinicians and researchers the developmental, neurological and muscular physiology and mechanics of walking to help them interpret their data.
This course will provide the attendees with an understanding of the factors that influence walking, and the knowledge required to interpret clinical gait data through a mixture of lectures and workshops, including case study discussions and the opportunity to observe a patient volunteer undergoing gait analysis in our gait laboratory.
