Abstract

For motor incomplete spinal cord injured patients, improvement of walking function is an important aim in the rehabilitation program. In specialized treatment centers, the 6‑minute walking test, the 10-meter walking test or the timed-up-and-go test are used as an assessment tool to determine walking ability, but these tests are not able to assess the quality of gait. Marker-based movement analysis can be used as a reliable method to evaluate the gait pattern. This allows an objective assessment of gait quality over time or can be used to support therapy planning. The benefit of such an analysis is presented by means of two case studies.
