Gait movement refers to the motion and pattern of how an individual walks. Gait movement is a complex combination of balance, movement (stance and swing phase), and coordination of different muscle groups. Neurological damage and disease can lead to impairments that prevent individuals from performing gait movement. Research within the Neurorobotics community has provided innovative solutions that can help reduce the time needed for rehabilitation.

This Research Topic aimed to compile research that focuses on gait analysis methods. In the wake of the successful Olympics and Paralympics in 2021, this Research Topic focused on research that should go beyond helping people with impairments, where the findings will apply also to the sporting community. We hope that the research uncovered will be able to provide cutting-edge technology for patients, able-bodied persons and athletes at the top of their game...
