Individuals with CAI have demonstrated a more inverted foot position during walking when compared to a healthy control group. Copers are individuals who have had an ankle sprain but learn to cope and return to pre-injury levels of function and may be a better comparison group than healthy controls because they have had the same initial injury.

Minimum and maximum values of gait kinematics and kinetics data are commonly used to quantitatively describe a walking pattern.
Individuals with Rett syndrome suffer from severely impaired cognitive and motor performance. Current movement-related therapeutic programs often include traditional physical therapy activities and as...
Inertial measurement unit (IMU)-based gait analysis can be used to quantitatively analyze the bilateral coordination and gait asymmetry (GA). The purpose of this study was to investigate changes in bi...
Many people with multiple sclerosis (pwMS) experience walking impairments often including foot drop, evident as either reduced dorsiflexion at initial contact and/or at the swing phase of the gait cyc...
To examine the immediate effects of a hip-assistive wearable robotic exoskeleton on clinical walking performance, walking energetics, gait kinematics, and corticomotor excitability in individuals with...
A combination of diabetes and neuropathy can cause an altered gait, increased tissue stiffness, limited joint mobility, muscle weakness, foot deformities, thus leading to excessive plantar...
Amputees wearing a conventional prosthesis require 20-30% more metabolic energy to walk at the same speeds as non-amputees and this discrepancy is more apparent at faster walking speeds. A...
Individuals with chronic ankle instability (CAI) have demonstrated altered gait patterns. Gait training may be necessary to address these alterations as protocols focusing solely on streng...
This research project is being conducted to investigate changes in secondary impairments, functional mobility skills, and gait variables in children with spasticity following selective per...
A control and a post-stroke subject with right-side chronic hemiparesis were studied. The post-stroke subject underwent 30 sessions of balance-perturbed training while walking on an instru...
Manner or style of walking.
An activity in which the body advances at a slow to moderate pace by moving the feet in a coordinated fashion. This includes recreational walking, walking for fitness, and competitive race-walking.
The rate at which steps are made while walking.
Impairment of the ability to coordinate the movements required for normal ambulation (WALKING) which may result from impairments of motor function or sensory feedback. This condition may be associated with BRAIN DISEASES (including CEREBELLAR DISEASES and BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES); SPINAL CORD DISEASES; or PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES.
Impaired ambulation not attributed to sensory impairment or motor weakness. FRONTAL LOBE disorders; BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES (e.g., PARKINSONIAN DISORDERS); DEMENTIA, MULTI-INFARCT; ALZHEIMER DISEASE; and other conditions may be associated with gait apraxia.
