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.

Instrumented gait analysis systems offer objective evaluation of the effectiveness of the various rehabilitation treatments that are aimed at improving gait disabilities. There are four sections in this report: clinical observation; review of the instrumental gait analysis systems; the value of information resulting from instrumented gait analysis from the perspective of a psychiatrist, an orthopedic surgeon, & a physical therapist; & discussion of future trends for gait laboratories. The authors are experts from multiple rehabilitation specialties to give you an understanding of how gait analysis can be used to evaluate a person's walking abilities to maximize function & maintain or improve quality of life.

Die Orthopädische Kinderklinik Aschau – mit Herrn Dr. Döderlein an der Spitze – ist ein bekanntes und renommiertes Haus, wenn es um Kinder mit Infantiler Zerebralparese geht. Sein Expertenwissen vermittelt Dr. Döderlein mit der „Infantilen Zerebralparese“, die nun in der 2. vollständig überarbeiteten und aktualisierten Auflage vorliegt. In die Behandlung von Patienten mit Infantiler Zerebralparese sind viele Berufsgruppen involviert. Übereinstimmend setzen die Therapien an den Problemen mit den Bewegungsorganen an, die das Krankheitsbild prägen. Bewusst spricht Dr. Döderlein alle Berufsgruppen an, die an der Versorgung der Patienten beteiligt sind - er möchte die Entwicklung einer gemeinsamen Sprache fördern. Das Buch vermittelt das Wesentliche einer zielgerichteten Diagnostik und der konservativen und operativen Therapie. Neben der vergleichenden Darstellung der normalen und der pathologischen Entwicklung werden Ursachen, Diagnostik und Klassifikation der Gangstörungen beschrieben. Sie bieten Hilfestellung bei Entscheidungen in Bezug auf die Therapie. Neuestes aus der konservativen Therapie wird vorgestellt und die Operationen sind ausführlich beschrieben und bebildert. Einige Operationsdarstellungen sind für Elterngespräche gedacht, um an Hand der Bilder erklären zu können, was wie und warum operativ gemacht wird.

An increasing segment of the population is being reported to have some disability. Adding to this changing demography of the modern world is an almost explosive growth of ageing populations. These functionally impaired people navigate their way in a world which has specifically designed values obtained from a 35-year old male, which has a number of social consequences. The international contributors to this volume address a range of subject areas with accompanying functional impairments and provide some proven and possible solutions. Regardless of origin of the impairment, rehabilitation endeavours to restore the function to normal or as close to normal as can be expected. On the other hand, ergonomics enhances the functional capacity of people by optimizing the fit between the person and the object process. Therefore, a blend of these two disciplines will allow the development of strategies to enhance and optimize the functional ability of subnormal groups. This text covers: ageing; visual impairment; chronic heart disease; musculoskeletal disorders; vocational rehabilitation; mobility and clothing for the disabled. In addition it covers the areas of gait, slip, trips and falls, anthropometry and assistive technology.
