Gait is a major human movement, and its physiological function is fundamental for a wide range of physical activities (e.g., household chores, sports, transportation, work). However, this movement can be compromised in the existence of any neuromuscular deficit such as muscle weakness, abnormal muscle tone, and coordination. Despite the large number of neurological and orthopedic conditions inducing neuromuscular deficits, few data exist on the concomitant changes in gait. Therefore, this Special Issue invites original research and review papers in both neurological and orthopedic conditions that lead to abnormal gait. We are especially interested in research on the effects of cerebral palsy, cerebrovascular accident, ataxia, Parkinson's disease, and weakness of hip, knees, and ankle muscle groups on gait mechanics and metabolic cost.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biomechanics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
