Digital gait analysis

Digital gait analysis allows orthopaedic experts to exactly record the movements of children.

In contrast to subjective gait analyses, where doctors or physiotherapists observe the patient, the computer-aided version provides exact, three-dimensional data – also of movement functions such as muscle contraction or muscle coordination, which cannot be observed with the naked eye or only to a limited extent.

The examination in the gait laboratory does not put strain on the child and is not associated with any pain:
The young patient walks through the gait laboratory and is filmed with infra-red cameras from several angles. In addition, biomechanics attach surface electrodes to the legs – the doctors can thus record and display the electrical muscle activity.

The child benefits from the digital gait analysis in two ways: On the one hand the diagnostic findings are supplemented and refined, and on the other the doctors can verify the success of the therapy after the operation by means of repeated gait analyses.

We carry out these gait analyses together with our colleagues from the paediatric clinic in Jena.
