Focal points of the Schön Klinik Vogtareuth
Gait analysis in clinical diagnostics of the musculoskeletal system and nervous system is essential and serves as one of the bases for therapy decisions, progress controls and for the provision of aids (e.g. with orthoses, prostheses) in the treatment and rehabilitation of children and adults.
In the gait and movement laboratory at the Schön Klinik Vogtareuth, movement abnormalities of orthopaedic and neuro-orthopaedic patients are analysed using measurement technology. Primarily, paediatric orthopaedics, neuropaediatrics and adult rehabilitation patients are examined. In the case of adult rehab, mainly neurological patients, sometimes with additional orthopaedic abnormalities (e.g. foot deformities) of different diagnostics, are examined.
In children, for example, patients with short stature, idiopathic or syndromic axial and torsional deformities, leg length differences e.g. due to musculoskeletal deformities and malformation syndromes, neurological and idiopathic foot deformities such as bent, club or hollow feet and muscle diseases or congenital joint stiffness are examined.
In addition, adolescents with congenital or acquired damage to the brain, such as cerebral palsy, after tumour removal, craniocerebral trauma or stroke, who exhibit spastic or other forms of paresis, are analysed.
