helicopodia; Todd's gait
A sweeping type of gait observed in spastic hemiplegia, resulting from the inability of the leg to be moved forward without describing an arc, the radius of which is external to the body, with the foot scraping the ground.
This is a result of a combination of extensor spasticity, causing difficulty in flexing the knee, together with spastic footdrop.
