The Gait and Motion Analysis Laboratory was opened in 2000. It was the first Gait and Motion Lab in Mexico. Actually, it offers clinical gait analysis applied to the treatment and rehabilitation of children with CP and other pathologies.
The team Lab is composed by 1 Medical Doctor (Rehabilitation Medicine Specialist) and 1 PhD (Bioengineering).

Juan Carlos Pérez Moreno
Rehabilitation Medicine Specialist
We specialized in the treatment of walking disorders in children and teenagers.
They are referred by internal or external specialists for an exhaustive clinical evaluation that includes gait analysis and clinical assessment. The collected information is used by a team of specialists, who will recommend the best treatment and rehabilitation plan for each patient.
The BTS system is reliable and user-friendly. It is possible to develop specific protocols to analyze different movements. We have developed protocols for functional movements such as: kinetic andkinematics of the upper limbs during the reaching tasks, kinematics of wheelchair propulsion in patients with spinal cord injury, stability, jump and crawling.
The equipment fulfils the requirements we need for optimal operation, reliable data collection and quick access to the information.
