Table 2 Reasons performing clinical gait analysis (modified from Brand [1, 2])

From: Gait analysis methods in rehabilitation

Clinical gait analysis is performed to allow the selection from amongst treatment options (including the possibility of not intervening). This is based on one or more of:
1. Diagnosis between disease entities.
2. Assessment of the severity, extent or nature of a disease or injury.
3. Monitoring progress in the presence or absence of intervention.
4. Prediction of the outcome of intervention (or the absence of intervention).
