The process of clinical gait analysis interpretation is complex and subject to the experience and professional background of the gait analyst. Here we present a novel, systematic way of reasoning, to bridge the critical gap between identifying abnormal gait features and finding their underlying impairments , to be addressed by a therapeutic intervention. The method is illustrated using a clinical case of a 7yo girl M. with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy, GMFCS level II, due to periventricular leucomalacia associated with prematurity (26+2 weeks).
