Gait analysis has been proved to be useful in clinical decision making, post intervention evaluation, prosthetic and orthotic evaluation and in other biomedical researches in pathologies of the neuromusculoskeletal system. With recent development of technologies comprehensive gait analysis with kinematic analysis, kinetic analysis, dynamic electromyography and energy expenditure measurement has been introduced in clinical setting. Available methods from observational analysis to complicated computerized motion analysis systems were reviewed to help choose most suitable method since there are many different ways to reach the similar goal according to the patient population, budget, space, personnel and time.

Key Words: Gait analysis, Kinematics, Kinetics, Dynamic electromyography, Oxygen consumption
