analysis contributes significantly to the management of patients
with a number of medical conditions, including cerebral palsy.
Gait Analysis: An Introduction, now in its
third edition, is widely used and respected throughout the
world, since it makes this potentially difficult subject easy
to understand. It begins with the basic sciences of anatomy,
physiology and biomechanics, and goes on to explain normal
and pathological gait. It covers the wide range of methods
available to study gait, from the unaided eye to powerful
computer-television systems. The book is accompanied by an
interactive multimedia CD-ROM, with gait data from both a
normal subject and a patient.
