Clinical and Biomechanical Assessment of Walking Gait explains why fancy tools aren't necessarily needed to perform a good gait analysis. In reality, all that is required is an understanding of the structure and strength of the muscles involved in walking, as well as knowledge of relevant visual clues and appropriate functional aspects (tests) attendant to proper gait. Featuring a foot-up-hip-down perspective of gait assessment, the DVD looks at both foot mechanics and hip mechanics, in addition to ankle muscle strength. The DVD also details the key muscles associated with a typical gait. In the hands-on lab portion of the DVD, examples of techniques that can be used to assess gait are shown and explained.
