Human Gait Model Development for Objective Analysis of Pre/Post Gait Characteristics Following Lumbar Spine Surgery
MetadataShow full item record
Although multiple advanced tools and methods are available for gait analysis, the gait and its related disorders are usually assessed by visual inspection in the clinical environment. This thesis aims to introduce a gait analysis system that provides an objective method for gait evaluation in clinics and overcomes the limitations of the current gait analysis systems. Early identification of foot drop, a common gait disorder, would become possible using the proposed methodology.
