Gait Analysis and Mobility

 

Improving Mobility Through Technology

The Gait Analysis and Mobility Center at Marianjoy specializes in walking and gait analysis for patients with experiencing difficulty or irregularity with walking. Through the Marianjoy Analysis Laboratory, clinicians use movement assessment to gain a clearer understanding of disease mechanisms and the effectiveness of new treatment approaches to improve rehabilitation outcomes.

Typically, the program is targeted for patients with gait disorders resulting from any of the following causes:

  • Stroke
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Other neuromuscular disorders
  • Orthopaedic impairments (including amputation, total hip replacement, total knee replacement)
  • Cardiovascular impairments (including endurance and post-surgery needs)

Benefits of therapy in the Gait Analysis and Mobility Center include:

  • Posture improvement
  • Strengthening with reduced weight-bearing
  • Secure harness systems to reduce balance concerns
