|(1 cr.) This online course provides an overview of both
normal and abnormal gait with an emphasis on
kinematic and kinetic analysis of the gait cycle.
Gait analysis techniques including motion
analysis, dynamic electromyography, force plate
recordings, measurement of energy cost of
ambulation and measurement of stride
characteristics are presented. Physical therapy
treatment approaches for patients with abnormal
gait are emphasized.
