biomechanical assessment

biomechanical assessment

static and dynamic examination and assessment of joint complexes (foot and ankle, knee, hips and spinal column) and their interrelationships, under both weight-bearing and non-weight-bearing conditions; made by clinical observation and quantification of: (1) the position of joint axes and the functional segments of the body; (2) the quality, range and direction of motion of joints and functional limb segments; and (3) observation, quantification and examination of limb function during gait and movement (see Table 1)
