Gait Foundation (GF) was founded by Usama Bin Yar in 2021 and it is a non-profit organisation, who is currently in the process of registration. GF is based in Pakistan and its core areas are clinical-based orthotics, prosthetics, rehabilitation, assistive-technology and evidence-based research. Its main aim is to serve the community with all its heart and resources to make them rehabilitate into their normal lives. As it is a prime responsibility and debt to the community we hold today as clinicians or medical practitioners. We all have spent our half of the age to study medicine and several related subjects. So, it should be our supreme duty to look forward for advancements, provide quality and spread smiles in healthcare sector. For that, one should be more dexterous, critical-thinker, compassionate and thoughtful.
To accomplish that, GF has a core attitude to merge directly both clinical and research practices to yield actual evidence-based outcomes for the benefits of this professional area and also to support those aspects which are undermined and neglected. It is true that, technology is flighting day by day and we have to process and progress accordingly to make it more fruitful, but in this race the basic practices are being lagged as everything requires to be compared, surveyed and analysed from the forth.
