Comprehensive assessment of the way you walk or run
What is Gait Analysis?
Gait analysis is a way of assessing the way you walk or run. Not only do we look at your feet but we also focus on your knees, hips and back. The gait assessment is a valuable tool for us to help determine the cause of your problem and identify biomechanical problems that we will address.
Our on-site gait assessment lab is fully equiped with the latest technology and software to investigate every little detail.
We will record your gait via high speed, hi-definition cameras from various views on a treadmill. Realtime video, together with data gathered ,will then be relayed to a laptop for visual analysis. This will facilitate slow motion and freeze frame analysis when your gait is assessed by our certified pedorthist.
