Note that the layout within Microsoft Internet Explorer is different to other web browsers. The headers have white backgrounds and some white text in the headers is lost. Haven’t got a clue what causes this but suggest using another browser such as Mozilla or Chrome in which the blog appears as I’ve intended it to.

About this blog

For those of you who don’t know me I’m Richard Baker, Professor of Clinical Gait Analysis at the University of Salford. I’ve started this blog to give me a less formal opportunity to comment on what’s going on in the world of lower limb biomechanics and gait analysis. It has recently been adopted as a formal output of the CMAster Consortium which is developing Education and Training resources for clinical gait analysis.

The site seems to be getting a growing number of visitors and views and I hope you too will find it interesting. Do sign up to “follow” (using the widget under the Tag cloud and Categories widgets on the right hand side of the page) and you’ll receive notifications when pages are updated. Please do leave comments as well – its great to hear what other people have got to say. There are a number of other ways to join up with our work at the University of Salford on the Join US page.

My research interests cover lower limb biomechanics, clinical gait analysis and gross motor function of children with cerebral palsy. I’ve published widely and have just completed a book to be published by Mac Keith Press in March 2013. There’s a little more information about me  on my University profile and you can find a full list of my publications on my Google Scholar profile.
