Abstract

Stunting is one of the most prevalent forms of child malnutrition with estimated 22.2% children in Indonesia suffered from it. Children with stunting have shorter body height compared with normal children and usually associated with various effects, including cognition, memory, and locomotor skills. As walking is one of the locomotor skills, it is important to evaluating stunting children by their style of walk which refers to a gait. In this present study, twelve normal children and six stunting children with 2 years of age were assessed during gait trials at self-selected speed. Fifty-four gait cycles from three gait trials for all children were selected. Joint angles and angular velocity were computed using 2D video analysis. Statistical analysis was performed to find significant difference on the kinematic parameters between two groups. Based on the current results, we concluded stunting children have similar kinematic gait characteristics with normal children.
