Study of Gait in children with Neuromuscular conditions
This area of research is a collaboration between the departments of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Surgery. We run a clinical gait analysis program that investigates gait impairments using instrumented gait analysis. This includes a full clinical, kinematic, kinetic and EMG analysis for use in developing treatment recommendations for kids with walking impairments.
