What Is Gait Training?



Gait is term used to describe the unique ways that each individual walks. Therefore gait re-training is the development and implementation of strategies designed to help improve walking style, efficiency and ability.

The aim of gait training is to help your child develop and maintain the most effective walking style possible.
