Clinical Gait Analysis: A Focus on Interpretation
Level 1 and Level II Courses
Sponsored by Gillette Children’s in collaboration with Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and the KU Leuven Clinical Motion Analysis Laboratory
This three-day course featured level I and level II course options. The level I course teaches introductory skills for analyzing gait and planning associated treatments. The level II course is tailored to clinicians who have experience in gait analysis. In the level II course, presenters discuss in depth the complexities of gait issues in children who have disabilities.
Both courses focus on interpreting gait data and planning associated treatments for ambulatory children who have cerebral palsy.
The event originated at Newington Children’s Hospital in Newington, CT 28 years ago, and has since grown into a global course that rotates between three sites: Connecticut Children’s in Hartford, Gillette Children’s Specialty Health Care in Minneapolis, and the Clinical Motion Analyis Laboratory in Leuven, Belgium. This year’s course will include presentations from Connecticut Children’s faculty members Kristan Pierz, MD and Sylvia Ounpuu, MSc from Connecticut Children’s Center for Motion Analysis.
