Instrumented gait analysis systems offer objective evaluation of the effectiveness of the various rehabilitation treatments that are aimed at improving gait disabilities. There are four sections in this report: clinical observation; review of the instrumental gait analysis systems; the value of information resulting from instrumented gait analysis from the perspective of a psychiatrist, an orthopedic surgeon, & a physical therapist; & discussion of future trends for gait laboratories. The authors are experts from multiple rehabilitation specialties to give you an understanding of how gait analysis can be used to evaluate a person's walking abilities to maximize function & maintain or improve quality of life.
