Introduction to Movement Analysis




Members Only Area


Welcome to the website of the Clinical Movement Analysis Society of UK and Ireland (CMAS). The society is involved with the analysis of human gait and other movement.

The biomechanics of human movement has attracted interest from the earliest days of science and medicine. Movement analysis started with clinical observation of patterns of movement. This progressed to video recording allowing movement to be viewed repeatedly and in slow motion. Today, technology allows 3D motion capture where movement can be studied in greater detail and allows objective measures to be made. Movement analysis has many applications including sports science, medical research and the clinical management of patients with gait disorders.

CMAS was formed to encourage professional interaction, develop and monitor operational standards and training, and to stimulate and advance scientific knowledge in the fields of clinical motion analysis.

Further information on the work of CMAS can be found through the links on the left.

The 13th Annual General and Scientific Meeting will be held on Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th April, 2014, at the Orthotic Research & Locomotor Assessment Unit (ORLAU), Oswestry. Further information can be found at: 2014 CMAS Annual Meeting.
