This is a Podiatry assignment. it consist of analyzing a persons gait cycle and biomechanical examination. i will provide you with examples to make your job easier. be aware the you can only use the examples as a reference in how to start writing the assigment. i will also send you pics of the person you will need to analysie as well as the biomecahnical examination results.
when writing the assignment you will need to answer this questions:
• Which OKC f(open kinetic chain) indings were clinically significant or outside of normal/expected range? (e.g. restricted ROM (range of motion), STJ (subtler joint) varus/valgus, FF(Forefoot) varus/valgus)
• Which CKC (close kinetic Chain) findings were clinically significant? (e.g. tibial varum, RCSP (resting calcaneal stand position) excessively everted)
• Was there any difference between NCSP (natural Calcaneal Stand position) and RCSP? Was this difference what you expected?
• Can you explain any patterns of compensation based on your OKC findings?
• Were your “abnormal” findings predominantly in the frontal, sagittal, or transverse plane (based on biomech assessment, FPI, and gait analysis)?
• Compare your rearfoot measurements during stance phase with your CKC static stance assessment. Was this what you expected to find?
• Compare your gait assessment with the classification of foot type based on the Foot Posture Index. Are these consistent?
• Did you notice any asymmetries between right and left sides, especially during gait?
• Did your angular measurements throughout the gait cycle follow a “normal” pattern?
• Give an overall summary of your significant findings.
This all related to the person i will send you pics of. you need also mention if you think there is any kind of deformities or wrong with the persons foot.
. You do not need to repeat the results from the gait analysis and biomechanical exam sheet. Instead you are explaining how the findings interrelate. For example, the person may have a large forefoot varus in OKC examination. In CKC this may present as an everted RCSP. In gait this may present as an everted calcaneal position through the contact and midstance phase of gait. Hence, you would link the static and dynamic findings.
