Computerized gait analysis in the rehabilitationof children with cerebral palsy and spina bifida
Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) HTA Report #5.
This assessment of computerized gait analysis in the management of children with cerebral palsy (CP) or spina bifida (SB) has been prepared at the request of the Glenrose Hospital, Edmonton. The hospital has already undertaken developmental work towards establishing a gait analysis facility.
Advice was sought on the status of the technology in the context of its use in the clinical management at the hospital of selected children who have CP or SB. Specifically, there was interest in the use of this technology for pre-treatment decision making and post-treatment assessment.
The report reviews the available information on the use of gait analysis in clinical decision making, and then considers its potential application at the Glenrose Hospital.
NOTE: In 2006 the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research HTA unit moved to IHE. Documents produced in and prior to 2006 have different formats; the format was determined by the agency for which the document was produced.
