Gait Analysis

Gait Analysis is a methodology that enables the study of body movements and postures. In the Center for Child Development’s Gait Analysis laboratory, it is possible to measure “how a patient walks” from both a qualitative and quantitative standpoint, highlighting any functional limitations and enabling clinicians to assess the effectiveness of certain therapeutic courses of action.


With the use of cameras and a platform that can detect the force exerted on the ground, body movement and muscle activity can be analyzed.

In the field of children’s rehabilitation, being able to carry out movement and posture analysis is essential for making diagnoses and deciding on treatments that address not only physiological aspects, but also cognitive and psychological ones.

In addition, the results of Gait Analysis allow for better calibration of physical-rehabilitative exercises and the use of therapies such as toxin-botulin therapy or functional orthopedic surgery.
