Introduction to Clinical Gait Analysis: CPD course


The University of Strathclyde’s Biomedical Engineering Department has launched a new online course on clinical gait analysis course. Organised over four blocks (roughly 3 hours per week), it features clinical case studies, quizzes and forums and covers low cost technology as well as gait laboratories and aims to improve understanding of gait impairments and how to measure them in a clinical environment. 
There is NO EXPECTATION of existing knowledge of biomechanics or gait analysis.
