Clinical gait analysis: A review of research at the Interdepartmental Research group of Kinesiology in Leiden

Research output: Contribution to JournalReview articleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

In this article the methodology used in the Interdepartmental Research Group of Kinesiology to quantify (clinical) human gait is elaborated upon. Four methods are described: analysis of temporal parameters, goniometry, accelerometry and electromyography. A correct representation of electromyographic and goniometric data depends on the way in which the data are synchronized. If all synchronization points available are used, the error in ensemble averaging is reduced. Care has to be taken not to distort the real time axis. A combination of the described methods may be especially useful for the improvement of our knowledge of human gait.
