Neurologic Gait Disorders - Science topic
Gait abnormalities that are a manifestation of nervous system dysfunction. These conditions may be caused by a wide variety of disorders which affect motor control, sensory feedback, and muscle strength including: CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; or MUSCULAR DISEASES.

Parkinson Disease (PD) is a degenerative disease that affects motor function and sequential.
At which level of H&Y stages will this improve?
Short term or long term effect?
Any evidence to help patient and client?
Hello to everybody,
I am new to the field of the Gait Analysis, but I did lots of study to explore this topic as this is the first part of my project proposal. Thus, the second part consists of developing a system that can extract gait features (like cadence, stride time etc) from a video, but I have no idea where to start because I have not found any source code yet. The main idea is extracting gait features related to PD from healthy people (Training Set) and, in a later moment, from PD people (Test Set), so that new gaits will be classified as abnormal.
Basically, here is explained the main idea: a classifier takes in input a video of one healthy person performing his/her gait, and the classifier extracts relevant features; this is executed multiple times with different people (generating the Training Set). At the end of the supervised learning, the classifier takes in input a new, unseen person gait and it has to evaluate if the person is healthy or ill (if ill, what disease); this is executed multiple times with different people (generating the Test Set).
Do you know any projects available that can carry out my task, or suitable to my situation? Of course, any programming language is accepted (Python and MATLAB are very welcome) as well as any datasets (either existent or self-made).
Thank you for your availability and patience.
I am planning a study on freezing in patients with Parkinson’s disease. I need basic parameters including and especially time taken to initiate walking.
What is the most affordable way to conduct such gait analysis? Insoles? Affordable gait mats?
Thanks for your response in advance,
Tourette syndrome is found to be one of the possible causes of a retropulsive gait as given in the link below.
However, I cannot find a published peer-reviewed article or a standard book that justifies this as a fact. Can anyone provide a link to such a material that states that Tourette syndrome can cause retropulsive gait?
What do you think about self controlled body weight support via EMG from different muscels? What has to be changed to make Body weight supported Gait training more sucessful?
81 year old women presenting generalized syncronous myoclonic jerks with a frecuency of 0.1-0.2Hz (each 5-10 seconds) since 16 hours with a perfect alertness and alfa dominant posterior rithm.. Do you believe in C3-C4??cervical*subcortical generation*? She suffered proximal humerus fracture two months ago. gait impairment, I do not know reason. (video EEG shows first proximal movement arms and legs, not distal hand muscles, no involvement of the orbicular oculi). Thank you. Dare you to say that is not epileptic, yes? DZP 5 mg no effect.. Brain and neck CT will be performed today...
Kindly I need a database (raw data or data-set) for Sagittal kinematic data and kinetic data for children with cerebral palsy. and the type of their gaits (crouch gait, jump gait, apparent equinus, true equinus and mild gait).
This is related with dopamine innervation. I want to know if it is possible to relate dopaminergic innervation of basal ganglia and sensory motor cortex for arm movements to gait.
My thesis is on using human gait as a security tool and I need codes for silhouetting of the video and and selection of features for analysis.
