Gait Analysis: An Introduction focuses on the systematic study of human walking and its contributions in the medical management of diseases affecting the locomotor system. The book first covers normal gait and pathological gait. Discussions focus on common pathologies affecting gait, amputee gait, walking aids, particular gait abnormalities, gait in the elderly and the young, moments of force, energy consumption, gait cycle, muscular activity during gait, and optimization of energy usage. The manuscript then elaborates on the methods of gait

A no-nonsense guide for runners, trainers, and health professionals that shows how an understanding of anatomy combined with the latest in strengthening exercises can enhance injury-free running performance. Each time a runner's foot hits the ground, an impact force averaging three times their weight travels through the body at more than 200 miles per hour, causing the bones to vibrate and tendons to stretch. An average runner strikes the ground more than 10,000 times per hour, resulting in a remarkable amount of

Gait analysis is the systematic study of human walking, using the eye and brain of experienced observers, augmented by instrumentation for measuring body movements, body mechanics, and the activity of the muscles. Since Aristotle’s work on gait analysis more than 2000 years ago, it has become an established clinical science used extensively in the healthcare and rehabilitation fields for diagnosis and treatment. Forensic Gait Analysis details the more recent, and rapidly developing, use of gait analysis in the forensic sciences.
