Resumo: The objective of this case study was to describe and compare differences in gait patterns of a child suffering from Cerebroretinal Microangiophaty with Calcifications and Cysts, along the time (three data collections) under different conditions (barefoot, foot orthoses and insole). We performed a biomechanical analysis collecting spatio-temporal parameters and kinematic data, at free walking speed, during his 4th and 5th years of life. Different conditions were compared to verify the efficiency of the foot orthoses and insoles prescribed by doctors who assist him, and the effects over barefoot walking. Using an adapted set-up of markers based on Oxford multi-segmented foot, adapted to the child’s condition, data collection took place at the Biomechanics and Functional Morphology Laboratory, with 14 infrared cameras Qualisys Oqus 300, the collection was made with Qualisys Track Manager, and data was processed with Visual 3D. Data were collected according to the adaptation or prescription of foot orthoses, after a period of adaptation to their use. In each data collection, it was observed that new adaptations in foot orthoses benefit ankle movement under the three planes and adaptations in the lower limb joints. However, the effect of other kind of stimulus, such as physiotherapy, is unknown, as well as the direct effects of the disease evolution under his gait pattern, due to neural plasticity, loss of vision, individual’s ability to adapt to conditions. By maintaining regular data collection, it will be possible to contribute with more information about this rare and poorly described disease development, clarifying the importance of different factors influence under his gait patterns, as well as contributing to adaptations that will benefit him and improve his quality of life.
