ES 520G - Gait Analysis


This course examines the legged human locomotion in terms of biomechanics and neurophysiology. Students will acquire the ability to analyze walking and running gaits both qualitatively and quantitatively. The first section of the course will focus on describing healthy locomotion, and then transition into a study of gait deficits arising from pathological conditions. Hands-on gait analysis experiences, both guided and self-directed, will provide students with training in data collection techniques as well as reinforce these fundamental principles. 

Prerequisite: Enrollment in the Master of Athletic Training or instructor permission.
Credits: 3
