What you will learn

The aim of this online course is to introduce walking concepts and techniques


Description

The aim of this course is to introduce walking analysis concepts and techniques to both interested individuals and allied health professionals. It will present participants with the knowledge and tools to analyse and describe human gait and prescribe exercises that will assist in the retraining of the gait pattern. The  course will consist of both theory and practical components integrated to develop knowledge and skills in understanding walking mechanics.


The course is broken down into 7 modules and a multiple choice quiz:

  1. Constraints on walking

  2. Equipment, methods and outcomes of 2D and 3D analysis

  3. Influences on walking

  4. Physical examination examples

  5. Review of two examples of clinical gait

  6. Motor control theory for walking patterns

  7. Detailed examples of isolation and complex retraining exercises

  8. Assessment


Intended learning outcomes are:

  • Describe the underlying major constraints of walking that determine why we walk the way we do.

  • Describe and analyse the multiple methods of performing gait analysis and associated measurements (i.e. describe the typical gait cycle, joint angular kinematics and kinetics).

  • Describe the influences on walking such as surface, footwear etc.

  • Review physical examination protocols that should be a part of a gait analysis.

  • Analyse a clinical video example and associated 3D data

  • Describe a motor control theory as it relates to walking retraining.

  • Review and practice isolation and complex retraining exercises
