Steinert myotonic dystrophy (MD) is an autosomic dominant disorder characterized by musculoskeletal system involvement and by the phenomena of myotonia (delayed and prolonged muscle relaxation after activation), hyposthenia and hypotrophy, more distal and more pronounced in the upper extremities. Wright et al. described the gait kinematic and kinetic pattern of a group of patients with MD. In this study, a single case of a myotonic patient who underwent gait analysis for an orthosis prescription project was examined.
