Gait analysis is the systematic study of walking and running to analyse biomechanical dysfunctions of the body. It is used for diagnosis of injury and the planning of treatment for patients who suffer from conditions concerning their gait, as well as being useful in sport for increasing performance.
Our system offers analysis of walking and/or running over the RS footscan mat with over 4000 sensors embedded into it to gain in depth analysis of your foot positions, pressure and force distributed during the motion, in both 2D and 3D. The advanced software allows automatic division of the foot into specific regions. This allows force and pressure distribution within these areas to be analysed and associated with certain foot mechanics and functions. Force & pressure distribution in all regions of the foot can be analysed in graphical format, allowing insight into force & pressure in both localised and general areas under the foot during the stance phase. Once this information is achieved we are able to prescribe custom made orthotics to suit your individual needs. You will also be filmed and implemented into a very specific computer programme to analyse the angles of your hip, knee and ankles, as well as looking at stride length, pronation and body positioning whilst walking or running. These will then be studied and improved if needed.
Using this in depth technique, we can not only resolve your injury, but also prevent it from reoccurring. Injuries that would benefit greatly from our gait analysis would be ITB syndrome, plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis.
