Recovery of function is of prime importance after peripheral nerve injury and repair. This paper describes a method of obtaining and measuring walkingtracks and generating a Sciatic Function Index (SFI) to quantify functional sciatic nerve recovery in the rat. The reader is provided with a series of walking‐tracks to measure, analyze and compare to those analyzed by experienced observers.
