The cinematic analysis of the human march is a fundamental tool in rehabilitation medicine, because it facilitates the diagnosis, treatment, follow up and implementation of rehabilitation methods in pathologies associated with the movement. This analysis is based on the description and the quantification of the variability in the displacement of the center mass of the body and the centers of rotation of the joints, information that allows to obtain the various relations that appear to the expert in form of clinical report, or as a tool of virtual visualization, with the purpose of making an observational analysis of the march. In this article the foundations and the sequence of events that constitute a cinematic analysis of the march in medicine are reviewed, as a process that registers processes and quantifies the movement of the patient in a clinical context.
