What is the Enhanced Gait Variability Index?

The study of human locomotion consists of characterizing the shortest repeatable task in walking, the gait cycle. This movement is repeated over and over in order for humans to walk through the world. In addition to measuring the magnitude and symmetry of gait...

Using Gait Asymmetry to Define Gait Quality

Bipedal gait requires movements from the right and left sides of the body, which can be measured and analyzed to determine the quality of a person’s gait. A common method of analyzing the quality of gait is with spatial temporal gait parameters (STP). These...
