Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate how useful thematic analysis is in the elicitation of observations of gait from a video recording. This was undertaken by providing a video recording of human gait to “novice” and “expert” podiatry students. The observations were explored using the qualitative tool of thematic analysis. The exploration of human gait using this technique gave a rich abundance of information and demonstrated that a basic level of experience or knowledge is required to provide a simple description of human gait. With more expertise came a richer description of observation of human gait by the “expert” group compared to basic observations by the “novice” group. Thematic analysis allows the use of language and the depth of the information to be evaluated when observing human gait from a video recording.
