Gait analysis is the study of animal locomotion, in particular the human motion, through observations. These observations are then enhanced by instrumentation for measuring body movements, body mechanics, and the activity of the muscles. Gait analysis finds application in assessing and treating individuals with conditions affecting their ability to walk. Another application of gait analysis is in sports biomechanics where it is used to help athletes run more efficiently and to identify posture-related or movement-related problems in people with injuries. The study includes measuring various parameters of gait, its interpretation and drawing conclusions about the animal (health, age, size, weight, speed etc.) from its gait pattern.
