Figure 1: Representation of the multidimensional gait parameter space. The orange lines represent the distance each gait is from a symmetric gait (CGAM distance), which helps determine how far away a gait is from ideal. CGAM can also aid in ascertaining whether the overall gait pattern is improving (even if some of the parameters are getting worse). CGAM can incorporate more dimensions than the three shown, but that is hard to visualize.
