Comparsion of the normal child gait and the gait of the child with down syndrome
Compare the biomechanics of an activity of your choice in two situations and discuss the implications for clinical practice.
Compare the normal child gait with the gait of child with down syndrome
The activity should involve the whole body or a whole limb and not a single joint.
Discuss the differences in the kinematics and kinetics, giving examples of the most important forces and moments.
The average number of references used seem to be about 20 although this is not a fixed number; some have used half that number very successfully and some have used more than double that number less successfully. The idea is not to get lost in the detail but to keep the focus on the theoretical and clinical implications.
