Forensic Gait Analysis examines the intersection of podiatric medicine with forensic investigation—a study which links a suspect to a crime through analysis of his or her style of movement: how an individual walks, runs, and bends. The book provides a concise explanation of how the musculoskeletal system and biomechanics affect gait, examining how videos of perpetrators can be forensically analyzed and used for identification and investigative purposes.
