Gait disturbance in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is progressive, with significant shortening of stride length up to the point of permanent loss of ambulation. Anthropometric standardization of stride length using standing height (stride:height ratio, SHR) facilitates longitudinal evaluation of this characteristic against the backdrop of childhood growth as well as comparisons with typically-developing children regardless of age. Stride length to height ratio (SHR) was measured to characterize progressive ambulation impairment over time in boys with DMD aged 4-12 years vs.
