Mission Statement

The Gait Society's mission is to promote gait analysis as a method for advanced clinical care and research and to further educate orthotists, prosthetists and other medical professionals about the analysis and treatment of gait disorders in order to improve the functional abilities of physically challenged individuals in our community.

Gait Society Goals

The Gait Society's goal is to serve as an educational resource for the O community by offering articles, seminars, and/or instructional courses on topics of interest involving gait. Topics of interest include the following:

  • Current research findings
  • Clinical gait analysis techniques such as clinical gait evaluation
  • Outcome measures
  • Gait development
  • Specific gait abnormalities

By educating our members on these topics, we hope to meet the increasing need for evidence-based practice in the evaluation of gait.

Please feel free to contact us with questions or suggestions. There is no better way to be involved than to get involved. You can also email general inquiries to Andrew at the Academy - .
