Pediatric Gait Analysis Lab: See How it Helps With Complex Cases (Video)

Motion-capture technology aids therapeutic decisions

Children with complex gait abnormalities caused by neurologic conditions such as spina bifida and cerebral palsy may require orthotic or surgical interventions. Medical professionals need a detailed understanding of the impact of factors such as spasticity and body segment misalignment on a patient’s walking ability to make optimal treatment decisions.
