Now you can learn gait in a multi-media format from a highly interactive CD-ROM that is an essential classroom tool for the study of normal gait. This tool is also relevant for the clinician who desires a handy reference on a particular segment of the gait cycle. Gait: An Interactive Tutorial is a unique and user-friendly CD-ROM designed to clearly demonstrate the joint and muscle activity in each phase of gait and depict the forces incurred during gait by using audio, video, and text. This exciting new CD-ROM will be beneficial to all educational programs teaching gait because it covers the two major classification systems used in the study of gait and allows for tremendous flexibility in learning very precise areas of human gait. The user has the ability to select a sub-phase of the gait cycle and a specific joint to study during that sub-phase. The user then has the option to study gait from the perspective of muscle activity only, kinetic and kinematic data only, or an integrated approach of muscle activity and kinetic and kinematic data. Gait: An Interactive Tutorial provides the user with the capability to concentrate on specific areas where the most reinforcement is needed or to study the entire gait cycle to obtain a broader perspective. The self-assessment quiz feature is a tremendous addition to this essential learning tool as it provides immediate feedback to reinforce the principles just learned System Requirements: PC: Pentium Based PC or above, Windows 98 / 98 / or later, 6X CD-ROM drive, 16MB of RAM (32 MB Preferred), 15MB of hard disk storage, 8-bit SoundBlaster-compatible sound card, QuickTime 5.0 or higher for Windows (included).
