Ambulant children attending a neuromuscular outpatient clinic were invited to join a prospective observational gait study. Gait was assessed barefoot at preferred and fast speed using an electronic walkway. Anthropometric and functional mobility data was collected. Speed, step length and support base (heel to heel base of support width) were normalised to height to account for the large age height range. Double support time was normalised to the gait cycle (%GC). Results were compared to normative values from a similar local cohort of typically developing children.
