Chapter 10


Gait training is an essential part of the gait rehabilitation.

For walking, a secure supporting leg should be developed first.

The supporting leg remains connected to the ground in the movement cycle and is usually in an extended position. The free leg leaves the ground, is slightly bent at the knee joint and lifts to perform the step.

Subsequently, the free leg becomes the secure supporting leg, and the secure leg becomes the free leg. The guiding principle is: supporting leg before free leg! Always remember: supporting leg before free leg!
