Comparison of Gait Analysis by the Way of Semi-structured Interviews
In this study, we showed a video with five samples of patients walking to three practicing Physical Therapists. We used a one-on-one semi-structured interview to investigate how the Physical Therapists would predict problems and plan treatment programs based on what they observed in the video, and then we analyzed the results. We obtained qualitative data from interviews and charted them as quantitative data for analysis, which is a new approach for motion observation.
