This book encompasses the extensive work of Dr. Perry and her successful years as a therapist and surgeon, renowned for her expertise in human gait. The text is broken down into four sections: Fundamentals, Normal Gait, Pathological Gait, and Gait Analysis Systems. In addition to the descriptions of the gait functions, a representative group of clinical examples has been included to facilitate the interpretation of the identical gait deviations. The book includes detailed laboratory records and more than 450 expert illustrations and photographs. Gait Analysis is the essential reference for all health care professionals involved in musculoskeletal patient care, and has already been incorporated into many athletic training programs, university physical therapy programs and gait workshops across the country. Special Features Clinical significance of the most common pathological gait patterns. Patient examples to illustrate elements of normal and pathological gait. Over 450 illustrations and photographs with detailed descriptions providing essential information at a glance. Contents FUNDAMENTALS: Gait Cycle, Phases of Gait, Basic Functions NORMAL GAIT: Ankle Foot Complex, Knee, Hip, Head, Trunk and Pelvis, Arm, Total Limb Function PATHOLOGICAL GAIT: Pathological Mechanisms, Ankle and Foot Gait Deviations, Knee Abnormal Gait, Hip Gait Deviations, Pelvis and Trunk Pathological Gait, Clinical Examples GAIT ANALYSIS SYSTEMS: Motion Analysis, Dynamic Electromyography, Ground Reaction Forces and Vectors, Stride Analysis, Energetics

This workbook is designed to provide a basic understanding of normal & pathological gait. The text begins with basic concepts, such as terminology, & pathological mechanisms, & proceeds to a regional analysis of normal & pathological function. Later chapters discuss gait through life span, gender differences, cultural variations, changes seen in aging populations, & clinical examples. Thought questions are provided for each chapter with answer keys & bibliographic references at the end of the book. A unique feature of this book is the fact that students develop their own gait analysis forms & are guided in developing their skills in observational gait analysis. This process builds on the student's comprehension of the material while allowing each person to synthesize the information into a format that best suits each individual's learning style.

Gait Analysis: An Introduction focuses on the systematic study of human walking and its contributions in the medical management of diseases affecting the locomotor system. The book first covers normal gait and pathological gait. Discussions focus on common pathologies affecting gait, amputee gait, walking aids, particular gait abnormalities, gait in the elderly and the young, moments of force, energy consumption, gait cycle, muscular activity during gait, and optimization of energy usage. The manuscript then elaborates on the methods of gait analysis, including visual gait analysis, general gait parameters, timing the gait cycle, direct motion measurement systems, electrogoniometers, electromyography, accelerometers, gyroscopes, and force platforms. The publication tackles the applications of gait analysis, as well as clinical gait and scientific gait analysis, normal ranges for gait parameters, conversions between measurement units, and computer program for general gait parameters. The manuscript is a valuable source of data for students of physical therapy, bioengineering, orthopedics, rheumatology, neurology, and rehabilitation.

Provides a detailed clinical introduction to the application of biomechanics to the understanding and treatment of walking disorders. Practical issues in the performance of a three-dimensional clinical gait analysis are covered, together with several clinical cases illustrating the interpretation of findings. These cases also demonstrate the use of a variety of treatment methodologies, including physical therapy, walking aids, prosthetics and orthotics, botulinum toxin and surgery.

The only book to deal specifically with the treatment of gait problems in cerebral palsy, this comprehensive, multi-disciplinary volume will be invaluable for all those working in the field of cerebral palsy and gait (neurologists, therapists, physiatrists, orthopaedic and neurosurgeons, and bioengineers). The book is divided into two parts. The first is designed to help the reader evaluate and understand a child with cerebral palsy. It deals with neurological control, musculoskeletal growth, and normal gait, as well as cerebral injury, growth deformities and gait pathology in children with cerebral palsy. The second section is a comprehensive overview of management. It emphasizes the most fundamental concept of treatment: manage the child's neurologic dysfunction first and then address the skeletal and muscular consequences of that dysfunction. The book has been thoroughly updated since the previous edition, with a greater focus on treatment and several entirely new topics covered, including chapters on the operative treatment of orthopaedic deformities. The book is accompanied by a DVD containing a teaching video on normal gait and a CD-ROM containing the videos and motion analysis data of all case examples used in the book, as well as teaching videos demonstrating the specifics of many of the procedures used in the correction of gait deformities and gait modelling examples from the Department of Bioengineering at Stanford University.

Lower-Limb Prosthetics and Orthotics: Clinical Concepts is a comprehensive overview of lower-limb prosthetics and orthotics, covering normal and pathological gait, lower-limb biomechanics, clinical applications, as well as prosthetic and orthotic designs and components. Joan Edelstein and Alex Moroz have written Lower-Limb Prosthetics and Orthotics with the clinician's perspective in mind. Clinical management is incorporated throughout the text, including basic surgical concepts, postoperative management, preprosthetic care, and training in the use of devices. Additionally, this text incorporates unique features relevant to physicians such as prescription writing and prosthetic and orthotic construction and modification, as well as, the latest research regarding energy consumption and long-term utilization of prostheses.Chapters Include: Orthotics in neuromuscular diseases Orthotics in pediatrics Functional expectations Gait and activities training Transtibial and transfemoral prostheses and components Transtibial and transfemoral biomechanics, evaluation, and gait analysis Disarticulations and Bilateral Amputations With over 150 line drawings and photographs to supplement the text, Lower-Limb Prosthetics and Orthotics: Clinical Concepts is ideal for clinicians in the fields of physical medicine and rehabilitation, orthopedics, vascular surgery, physical therapy and occupational therapy.
