The Impact of Peripheral Arterial Disease on Gait Webinar

The Impact of Peripheral Arterial Disease on Gait Webinar

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) involves the build-up of plaque (atherosclerosis) along the arteries that carry blood to the peripheries (legs). Overtime, this plaque can reduce oxygen-rich blood supply to the peripheries. The impact of this reduced blood supply can be detrimental on a patients’ health and impacts their walking ability and performance. This webinar concisely describes the impact of PAD on gait and highlights strategies for exercise therapists to assist clients presenting with PAD.


Presented by Dr Robert Crowther, AES, AEP

Dr Robert Crowther is a senior lecturer with over fifteen years’ experience in both tertiary teaching and clinical experience. Dr Crowther completed his PhD on the effects of exercise training on lower limb gait in patients with peripheral arterial disease. He is a senior lecturer at the School of Behavioural and Heath sciences at the Australian Catholic University, with teaching experience in biomechanics, motor learning and control, strength training and conditioning, and clinical exercise physiology. His research focus on biomechanics and motor control areas of movement variability, foot mechanics, high performance sports.
