Summary : Gait analysis is the systematic study of human walking, using the eye and brain of experienced observers, augmented by instrumentation for measuring body movements, body mechanics, and the activity of the muscles. Since Aristotle’s work on gait analysis more than 2000 years ago, it has become an established clinical science used extensively in the healthcare and rehabilitation fields for diagnosis and treatment. Forensic Gait Analysis details the more recent, and rapidly developing, use of gait analysis in the forensic sciences. The book considers the use of observational gait analysis, based on video recordings, to assist in the process of identification or exclusion. With the increase in use of CCTV and surveillance systems over the last 20 to 30 years, there has been a steady and rapid increase in the use of gait as evidence. Currently, gait analysis is widely used in the UK in criminal investigations, with increasing awareness of its potential use in the US, Europe, and globally. The book details the history of the science, current practices, and of the emergent application to establish best-practice standards that conform to those of other forensic science disciplines. Engagement with the Forensic Science Regulator, and the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences in the UK, and the International Association for Identification has helped to ensure and enhance the quality assurance of forensic gait analysis. However, there remains a fundamental lack of standardized training and methodology for use in evidentiary and investigative casework. This book fills that void, serving as one of the first to describe the current state of practice, capabilities and limitations, and to outline methods, standards of practice and expectations of the gait analyst as a forensic practitioner. Forensic Gait Analysis reflects current research and forensic practice and will serve as a state-of-the-art guide to the use of gait analysis in the forensic context—for both education and training purposes. It will be a welcome addition to the libraries of professionals in the areas of podiatry, gait analysis, forensic video analysis, law enforcement, and legal practice.

Summary : There has been an increasing interest among clinicians in the quantitative assessment of the human locomotor function. The importance of this application in the orthopedic field is fundamental and requires further developments. Several studies have been published about gait analysis, many specific papers are available in literature, and a lot of conferences, symposiums and congresses have been dedicated to this matter. The quantity of information is enormous and sometimes it is not easy for the beginner to manage the different acquisition systems, acquisition methodologies and clinical interpretation of the resultant data. However, the consciousness of gait analysis s effective utility both in the research finding and in clinical decision making has made it indispensable in the present context. Our attempt, through this volume is to present an overview. Since we have worked up to now both in research and in clinical gait analysis, we have followed two major approaches in developing, on one hand the more appropriate methodology to obtain accurate and precise data, and on the other hand the best clinical results.

Summary : 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.

Summary : In an ongoing experiment being conducted at The Williamsburg Landing by The Center for Balance and Aging Studies (CBAS), gait analysis is being performed on senior citizens in order to identify gait characteristics that are predictive of an increased likelihood to fall. This thesis describes the design and analysis of wearable sensors meant to assist the Williamsburg Landing study by increasing the efficiency and breadth of data collection. These sensors collect distance data from the foot to the ground over the course of multiple steps and return an approximation of the average step cycle for the subject. From my analysis of the sensor data, I was able to determine key gait characteristics such as the step clearance and foot angle. Additionally, I created a mathematical gait model to compare with my data, using input parameters based on the subject's gait. I found that my model called for an additional damping term in order to agree with my data, suggesting that the leg swing during a step is more controlled than previously expected. Improving the efficiency and reliability of data collection in this experiment is important, as determining fall likelihood is a crucial step in preventing falls that are incredibly dangerous to senior citizens.

Summary : Complex regional pain syndrome type-I (CRPS-I) is a debilitating pain disorder often occurring secondary to distal extremity trauma. Its pathophysiology is not well understood; however, microvascular dysfunction is proposed as an important factor in its development and maintenance. Using a rodent model, we tested an automated gait analysis system (CatWalkTM) to examine functional changes. In addition, the use of carbon monoxide releasing molecule-3 (CORM-3), a compound known to be a potent vasodilator and anti-inflammatory agent, was also tested as a treatment of CRPS-I-like symptoms. Using the CatWalkTM system, we observed significant changes in gait parameters post-injury, several of which persisted throughout the 14-day experiment. CORM-3 administration significantly reduced mechanical allodynia symptoms, as demonstrated through the restoration of withdrawal thresholds during mechanical stimulation testing. Functional deficits were not restored after CORM-3 application; however, trends for improvement were observed. CORM-3 has relevance as a potential therapy to alleviate symptoms associated with CRPS-I.
