After measuring the gait pattern data, we can diagnose the following status information:


Gait normality -> functional walking
Regularity & Symmetry -> dynamic balance
Symmetrical load distribution -> fall risk factors

Gait is above walking pattern itself.
Normal gait is the coordinated movement between trunk, pelvis, and lower limbs with consumption of minimal energy and slow transition of the center of gravity of the body. For that purpose, each stance phase and each swing phase of lower limbs must be crossed for movement.
The signals from sensing systems such as vestibular systems and joint proprioceptors are sent to the central nervous system to perform normal gait function by using the sensorimotor integration mechanism. Accordingly, abnormal gait is closely related with symptoms from various points of views including orthopedic rehabilitation, cranial nerve system, cardiovascular system, endocrine system, ophthalmology, and ENT clinic.
Maintaining the standing posture and transition movement are dependent on trunk control ability, which can have balance through normal musculoskeletal posture control.
Complex aspects of gait can be understood as a process of symmetrical weight distribution. If we use the gait test, according to the age and health status for each gender, the efficiency for shock mitigation between the trunk and ground, trunk stability during cross of lower limbs, and trunk movement can be checked so that physicians may objectively perform diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment.
