Clinical Gait Analysis - An Impairment Focussed Interpretation Approach

Venue: University of Salford

Date: 4 Jun 2014

Synopsis: This three-day course aims to present a systematic approach to the interpretation of clinical gait analysis data and to empower health professionals from a range of disciplines to use it to write rigorously documented reports.


The approach – Impairment Focussed Interpretation – has been developed by Professor Richard Baker over the last ten years and described in his recent book “Measuring Walking – a Manual of Clinical Gait Analysis”. The course is based on highly successful courses pioneered by Professor Baker while he worked in Melbourne, Australia and which he has delivered to smaller groups from Denmark, South Africa, Russia and Thailand since moving to the University of Salford. Strong interest is anticipated and early booking advised.

The course will mix lectures, with work-shops and group based case-exercises. There will be a strong emphasis on encouraging attendees to put what they have learnt into practice culminating in case presentations on the final day when they will be able to showcase what they have learnt.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

• Explain the biomechanics of walking

• Describe the measurement processes of conventional clinical gait analysis

• Recognise artefacts and errors in gait analysis data

• Explain how common impairments affecting walking ability in conditions such as cerebral palsy

• Apply impairment focussed interpretation to analyse clinical gait analysis data
