Interesting things we've found about walking

Ghislaine Howard

Personal experience drew Ghislaine to the subject of walking: from charting the first hesitant steps of her children, to watching the determination and courage of her mother refusing to accept the debilitating progress of Parkinson’s disease. In particular Ghislaine was inspired by the work in the gait and human performance laboratory, where computer generated images and video footage are used to analyse every aspect of each individual patient’s walk.

She mostly worked with children with cerebral palsy; making drawings as they moved between two fixed points. Especially drawn to the extraordinary choreography of these short journeys, and using the oldest of technologies of pencil, paint and brush, Ghislaine charted their movements moving with them as they progressed from point to point.e gait and human performance laboratory, where computer generated images and video footage are used to analyse every aspect of each individual patient’s walk.

She said: “The resulting drawings capture something of their movements and the individual determination and courage of each child, the support of their families and the dedication and professionalism of the staff."
