Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Precise and objective evaluation of gait provides important information about an individual's overall health and can be used to detect symptoms of motor impairment, determine appropriate therapeutic procedures, and monitor rehabilitation progress. There are various gait analysis techniques currently available, including the three-dimensional motion tracking and the low density pedobarography, etc. The relative low cost, high accuracy and consistency, and automated data analysis features make the low density pedobarography technique an ideal platform for quantifying the spatial and temporal gait characteristics in various populations. The following chapter will review the use the low density pedobarography in conducting gait and balance assessment. Topics covered in this chapter will include the primary outcome measures of gait analysis using low density pedobarography, the validity and reliability of the equipment, the applications of the technique in clinical populations, guidelines for use, and the potential applications in future research and clinical environment.
