Gait Analysis

Prof. Rita Kiss
Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary


The biomechanics of Gait is a field of increasing importance and interest not only to researchers but to practitioners from various fields of expertise. Walking and running are very common human physical activities and play an important role in our daily lives. They can be performed in a variety of ways and directions. The analysis of gait parameters (kinematic and kinetic) and of variablity of gait parameters is very useful in orthopeadical and neurological science and it could provide a significant contribution to conservative therapy, to rehabilitation after different surgeries, and to sports.
This session will cover the following topics:
• Vision Motion Analysis (video-based system, infra-red-based system, ultrasound-based system, etc.)
• Pressure and Force Measurements
• Electromyographic Measurement
Clinical Gait Analysis
• Diagnostics
• Surgical Assessment
• Rehabilitation Assessment
Gait Analysis in Sport
Education of Gait Analysis
• Gait event detections
Please email all submissions to
