Collection of gait analysis data of healthy individuals

Gait disorders manifest themselves in various ways. In many cases, pathological gait patterns are actually accompanying effects or can even be symptomatic of an underlying disease. For this reason, biomechanical gait analysis can be a helpful tool when it comes to diagnosing problems and subsequently treating them. A sports scientist has now presented the Gutenberg Gait Database, a large publicly accessible database providing a reference set of data to be used for the diagnosis and treatment of gait disorders.
