Current Concepts in Gait Biomechanics

This course provides an overview of contemporary models of human gait and focuses on restoring function to patients with pathological gait patterns. Dynamic principles of gait are described using progressively more refined models (Inverted Pendulum, Dynamic Walking and Rocker‐Based Inverted Pendulum). Pathological gait patterns are described that result from the disruption of key dynamic and biomechanical events. Participants are guided through the process of establishing appropriate orthotic management and rehabilitation goals.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Assessment & application of gait restoration
  • Gait cycle, biomechanics, proprioception and muscle function
  • Common partial foot gait profiles
  • Dynamic principles of orthotic management
  • Inverted pendulum philosophies
  • Closed and Open Chain Dynamics
  • Patient gait training
