Abnormal gait, falls and its associated complications have high morbidity and mortality. Computer vision detects, predicts gait abnormalities, assesses fall risk, and serves as a clinical decision support tool for physicians. This paper performs a systematic review of computer vision, machine learning techniques to analyse abnormal gait. This literature outlines the use of different machine learning and poses estimation algorithms in gait analysis that includes partial affinity fields, pictorial structures model, hierarchical models, sequential-prediction-framework-based approaches, convolutional pose machines, gait energy image, 2-Directional 2-dimensional principles component analysis ((2D) 2PCA) and 2G (2D) 2PCA) Enhanced Gait Energy Image (EGEI), SVM, ANN, K-Star, Random Forest, KNN, to perform the image classification of the features extracted inpatient gait abnormalities.
