Gait analysis is the systematic study of human motion. It’s used to assess and treat individuals who have conditions affecting their ability to walk.
A range of equipment and sensors are attached to certain points on the legs, pelvis and spine. The individual’s walking ability is filmed. The sensors send information to the computer to give a 3D image of gait and balance. It also provides information about muscle activity, pattern of walking and the movement of underlying bones. Doctors consider the results, alongside weight, size, age and general health, to assess gait disorders and consider further treatment.
Developed at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford with funding from Action Medical Research, the Oxford Foot Model has now become the standard tool to enable doctors to make decisions around treatment. It’s used in several clinics, hospitals and universities throughout the UK.
To see if gait analysis would be suitable for you or your child, please consult your GP, hospital or orthopaedic consultant.
