Gait analysis contributes significantly to the management of patients with a number of medical conditions, including cerebral palsy. This book, now in its third edition, is widely used and respected throughout the world, since it makes this potentially difficult subject easy to understand. It begins with the basic sciences of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics, and goes on to explain normal and pathological gait. It covers the wide range of methods available to study gait, from the unaided eye to powerful computer-television systems. The book is accompanied by an interactive multimedia CD-ROM, with gait data from both a normal subject and a patient.
