Product Description


Now onto its fourth edition this text aims to cover the gait cycle down to a tee. It starts you off on the basics and gradually progresses in more depth.

The subject of gait analysis is approached from a biomechanical point of view with a lot of joint angle analysis, levers and moments and quite a bit on the equipment used to analyse gait. At points you begin to feel like you are looking at a robot and you have to remind yourself that this is human gait analysis.

There does not seem to be much coverage of observational gait analysis which is one fundamental part of physiotherapy practice.

While this is generally a good book for gait analysis, for us, as physiotherapists, to benefit from it we may need to spend some time interpreting the text and applying it from a slightly different perspective.

- Steve Canning, In Touch, Spring 2008, No. 122.

From the Publisher

Beginning and building on the basics of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics this text goes on to explain normal and pathological gait, emphasizing the clinical applications of gait analysis. The author covers the wide range of methods available to study gait, from the unaided eye to powerful computer-television systems and the book is accompanied by an interactive multimedia CD-ROM, with 'real' gait data from both a normal subject and a child with cerebral palsy.This new edition brings gait analysis into the real world of the clinic and will be an invaluable help to students and practitioners of physical therapy, orthopaedics, neurology, rheumatology, rehabilitation, bioengineering, and indeed all those involved in the study of human movement.Dr. Michael Whittle holds the Walter M. Cline Chair of Excellence in Rehabilitation Technology in the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and has honorary appointments as Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in the University of Tennessee College of Medicine. He is a qualified doctor, and has higher degrees in physiology and biomedical engineering. He has spent over 20 years running gait analysis laboratories in the University of Oxford, England, and the University of Tennessee. He previously worked as principal coordinating scientist for the musculoskeletal experiments on NASA's Skylab space station. EDITIONNUMBER: 21 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
