NC233 Introduction to Clinical Gait Analysis 2018 ON-LINE COURSE
Course dates: Start date 1st May 2018 until 15th June 2018 (6 week period/3hrs per week)
Location: On-line Course
Course fee: £150
Max No of places 50
Physiotherapists, Podiatrists, Orthotists, Prosthetists, Rehabilitation Doctors and Sports Therapists involved in the assessment and/or re-education of gait.
This on-line course will cover the practical and theoretical components of clinical gait analysis. It will include a revision of the gait cycle, the mechanics of gait (joint angles, movements and powers), a discussion on the theories of gait (why we walk the way we do) and an introduction to gait abnormalities, including an in depth case study. The course will use a combination of video, audio supported powerpoint lectures, word documents, quizzes and weekly discussion forums.
There is NO EXPECTATION of existing knowledge of biomechanics or gait analysis.
The course will be delivered on-line over a six week period with an estimated commitment of three hours per week. You can of course do the whole course over a shorter period but you may miss some of the interactive discussions.

Feedback from September 2017 course
· The structure of the course enabled me to dip in and out and I could, being able to refer back to subjects as necessary.
· I think the length of the course - 4 weeks - was pitched right.
· It met my expectations & requirements in terms of providing an in-depth & measured method of refreshing my theoretical knowledge & understanding of gait analysis.
· With this course people can have a good basic knowledge and can start to work with gait analysis.
· Explanations, Video and papers make the understanding easy.
· Basics/introduction to gait cycle/analysis was very good.
· 1. Although an online course, the lecturer was very approachable and responsive to questions/comments.
· 2. A good mix of theory and practical application.
· 3. Being an online course, a lot of time to go through materials at my own pace and 4 weeks is just about right.
· The use of videos with annotations helped to enhance analysis of gait cycle.
· I like that there were videos and voice recordings of the power point presentations.
· Using a case study to buttress and explain was a great idea.
· Excellent documents and powerpoint, interesting case studies.
· A well structured course covering just the right amount of detail for beginners and intermediate level, for those wished to refresh and further their knowledge in gait analysis and biomechanics.
· I particularly found the videos and assessment/analysis of an amputee, using a high end prosthesis, very useful as this is not something I have come across in practice.
