The world is at our feet with video-based quantitative gait analysis

      The gait exam is a crucial element of the neurological evaluation. Cadence, step or stride length, step width, step height, symmetry, variability, arm swing, and more [

      ], all have clinical implications. However, in most clinics, gait is only evaluated qualitatively. This is a missed opportunity – key parameter changes may be too subtle to be noticed by physicians.
