Multimodal gait analysis of osteoarthritic gait

So far, standardized quantitative gait analysis based is not part of the clinical decision process for the treatment of advanced knee osteoarthritis. In this project we focus on the multimodal analysis of objective and subjective variables before and after knee replacement surgery (total knee arthroplasty, TKA) to identify relevant variables that may be used to determine outcome of the surgery.
We include mobile sensor-based systems, 3D cinematography including instrumented treadmills, radiography, functional testing as well as standardized interviews. The goal of our research is the analysis of pathological human gait. Applications will be the quantitative and individualized assessment of movement disorders, interventions and rehabilitation progress. This project is funded by the Emerging Fields Initiative (Project EFI Moves)
