Late onset Pompe disease (LOPD) is characterized by significant motor disabilities, which affect in particular ambulation. Only one study reports on spatial-temporal parameters of gait assessed in a clinical heterogeneous group of unrelated patients. In this study spatiotemporal and kinematic gait patterns are described in a genetically homogenous group of LOPD patients using 3d movement analysis. 7 LOPD siblings, harbouring the same GAA mutations compound, were assessed with clinical scales and with 3d movement analysis to measure spatial-temporal and kinematic parameters during gait cycle and “sit to stand test”.
