A Review of Human Gait Analysis Methods

In XSENSOR Technology’s webinar series, Clinical Gait Assessment Using Plantar Pressure Analysis, Musculoskeletal Podiatrist & Trainer Paul Graham presents on clinical gait assessments and how the analysis of plantar pressure data has become crucial in understanding dynamic weight bearing function. This series will help you learn how plantar pressure analysis can inform clinicians of the complex interaction between the rearfoot, midfoot, and forefoot joints, particularly where there is pain and injury and how it can be used to predict functional outcomes with confidence.

Part one of this webinar series, A Review of Human Gait Analysis Methods, begins with an overview of human gait analysis by comparing the different methods and tools used for current clinical gait assessments, including the positive and negative attributes of each method, and how these compare to plantar pressure measurement technologies used to map foot function today.

Key Takeaways from Watching This Webinar:

  • Learn what gait analysis methods exist for clinicians to perform assessment protocols and how they compare to one another, including their areas of analysis and pros and cons.
  • Understand the different types of plantar pressure analysis tools including walkway sensors, insole sensors, and treadmills and how these can be used in daily clinical practices.
  • Experience an overview of human gait analysis from its earliest uses and how these methods paved the way for modern plantar pressure measurement technology.
