The present invention relates to methods for analyzing gait of a subject. In particular, the present invention relates to a method for analyzing gait of a subject, said method comprising: providing data representing the 3D-movement of a foot of said subject over time; identifying within said data first data segments that each represent of at least one stride; determining one or more stride features for each of said first data segments; and defining one or more clusters on the basis of at least one stride feature of said one or more stride features. Each of the defined clusters represents a class of strides, e.g. a class may represent the typical stride of a subject. The present invention also provides for corresponding systems that are configured to perform the methods of the present invention and the use of these systems for analyzing in assessing gait of a subject, preferably a subject suffering from a movement-impairment.
