Our favourite GAIT stories in the news:

This recently published study highlights the need for high-quality clinical data for comparing orthopedic surgery approaches and recommends  gait analysis as a tool for eliciting the long-term implications of surgical approach on clinical outcomes i.e. restoration of function.

Really interesting study just published in the Journal of Physical Therapy Science on the effects of “rhythmic auditory cueing” on improvement of motor function recovery in clinical patients.  See below for a link to the full article.
