If your institution subscribes to this resource, and you don't have a MyAccess Profile, please contact your library's reference desk for information on how to gain access to this resource from off-campus. Explain reliability, validity, sensitivity, and specificity in relation to gait analysis. Describe the variables that are examined in each of the following types of gait analyses: kinematic qualitative analysis, kinematic quantitative analysis, and kinetic analysis. Describe and provide examples of some of the most commonly used types of gait profiles. Compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of kinematic qualitative and kinematic quantitative gait analyses. Using the case study example, apply clinical decision making skills in evaluating gait analysis data. One of the major purposes of rehabilitation is to help patients achieve the highest level of function given their specific impairments so they can participate optimally in activities of interest.
