The Gait app is the first in a series of applications by PhysioU designed to train your eyes to analyze and understand human movement. The app is designed to help you learn and understand normal and abnormal gait.

"Learn phase" with high definition static pictures to develop your knowledge in preparation for real time movement analysis
"Learn phase" includes:
- Phases of gait
- Critical events of gait
- Range of motion requirements for each phase
- Muscle activity of the key muscles required for each phase

"Analyze" phase with high definition, real time and slow motion video to train your eyes
Analyze phase includes:
- Normal gait at regular and slow motion speeds
- Multiple views (front, side and rear)

Gait deviations organized by regions (trunk/pelvis, hip, knee, ankle/foot)
Gait deviations include:
- Trunk/pelvis deviations
- Pelvic drop
- Trunk lean
- Posterior trunk
- Anterior pelvic tilt
- Excessive transverse pelvic rotation
- Hip deviations
- Excessive femoral adduction internal rotation
- Insufficient hip extension
- Hip hike
- Hip abduction
- Varus thrust
- Insufficient hip and knee flexion
- Ankle and foot deviations
- Ankle forefoot contact
- Pes planus (flat feet)
- Pes cavus (high arches)

Common pathological conditions are also included to help you learn to analyze abnormal gait!
- Diabetic peripheral neuropathy
- Parkinson’s disease
- Incomplete quadriplegia
- Stroke
- Knee osteoarthritis
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome
- Spinal stenosis
- Plantar fasciitis
- Iliotibial band syndrome
- Turf toe
- Lumbar sprain/strain
- Peroneal tendon subluxation
- Shin splints/ medial tibial stress syndrome

What’s New

Version 1.2

Prosthetic gait deviations including common transfemoral and transtibial deviations, their associated phase, causes and penalties.

This app helped me to better understand the important abnormal gait patterns that you might see in your patients in the future and it really was helpful to get some "hands on experience" without watching someone in person because you could slow the videos down, looking for the most important abnormalities that could be contributing to dysfunction. It is a great learning tool so that when we go out in the clinic, we will be better able to identify gait abnormalities and thereby help our patients even better! This was way better than a text book by far!

Incredible new teaching and learning tool...

Learning to analyze gait has been taken to the next level! Designed to enhance learning, the app is broken into the learn phase where information is static and easy to absorb! No more stick figures! The analyze portion includes real time slow motion video from multiple views of normal and abnormal gait patterns! As a professor of 13 years in physical therapy education, no tool even come close to the quality and thoughtfulness put into this simple app! A must have tool for anyone interested in learning about gait and analysis!

This app made learning gait analysis easy!

I am so thankful that my teacher used this app in class to teach us gait analysis. The app made it so that everything was clear, organized and easy to follow. I especially loved how we could rewatch the videos on our own and look at additional examples. And now I will always have it to refer back to! Very well put together, thank you!!
