    This raises the question.

    We have a Foot Posture Index to standardize foot type classification. Is it possible to produce a Visual Gait Score for every patient that goes through a biomechanical assessment? If we were all looking for the same thing, based on a 'biomechanical guidline', then we may see fewer variants in treatment.

    I know this is difficult given the many different theories about foot function, it's worth some thought though.

    What do you think?

    Trent - I not sure how easy it would be.

    The Edinburgh system if for more of a gross type gait problem (ie cerebral palsy) and may not be sensitive enough for a nearer normal gait.

    Chip Sutherland published the GHORT shorthand system for recording gait in Valmassy's book, which is one possibility.

    We did play with for a short time using the Foot Posture Index on sequential digital video frames, so a gait could have a series of FPI numbers associated with it (we did not follow through with this).

    Craig,

    I hadn't understood the specificity of the Edinburgh system. However I like the idea of using the FPI on sequential digital video gait frames. You could even simplify this by having say just three Gait FPI scores, heel strike, mid stance and propulsion.

    I just really like the idea of standardising gait assessment. Giving a 'normal' range, or what we consider to be normal, could allow us to more accurately set perimeters for treatment. This could be another step towards consistency of prescriptions for orthoses. I think this is a really interesting area.
