What is Gait Analysis?
Clinical observation and radiographs are inadequate to assess the subtle dynamic aspects of walking. More comprehensive information is needed to prescribe effective clinical treatment. For this reason, the Wasserman Gait Laboratory uses sophisticated computer technology to run reports that monitor skeletal alignment, muscle function, and forces acting on the body during walking. The result is an objective and complete assessment of walking function.
Setting Up an Appointment
To schedule an appointment or obtain further information, please call 410-601-5945. Testing takes between 2 and 3 hours to complete. A signed prescription by your physician is required before we can proceed.
Assessment of gait by this sophisticated technique is relatively new, and not all insurance plans cover the expense of this test. Our gait laboratory staff can assist you in determining whether this assessment technique is covered by your insurance plan.
