Slow motion gait analysis + 2d pressure analysis
Shand Podiatry in Aberdeen offers the very latest in computerised gait analysis, a treatment which provides detailed and accurate feedback to optimise any changes required for optimum foot, ankle, lower limb and overall function.
Our experienced and highly qualified team of podiatrists use the sophisticated equipment to analyse your walking style, helping us to accurately diagnose any issues you may have with your feet or gait and plan treatment accordingly.
The technology produces a visual representation as well as data which our team interpret and feed back to you. This information allows us to produce an effective course of action leading to improved mobility, stability and comfort.
We specialize in video gait analysis and foot pressure analysis utilising a 2d digital analysis system and electronic pressure sensing device to record and analyse the gait frame by frame in slow motion. This can be very helpful in helping us to ascertain the mechanism behind an injury.
If we believe that the root cause of the injury is poor lower limb mechanics and that a structure or tissue is overloaded/overstressed and becoming damaged secondary to this, we will devise a treatment plan to alter this.
This could mean a change of shoe, a foot orthotic device, a heel raise, stretching or strengthening execises or joint mobilization to enhance joint function.
Following treatment the gait can then be re- analysed to look for kinematic changes (changes in the motion or alignment)

Bethany Skinner BSc Pod
Hi, my name is Bethany and I have recently joined the team at Shand Podiatry.
I graduated from Queen Margaret University in 2021 with Bcs Hons in Podiatry.
I started my career working for NHS Grampian before making the decision to join Shand Podiatry in April of this year.
My interest in podiatry started when I was 15. I was curious to learn about an injury I had sustained through highland dancing. This interest while being treated led me to pursue an education and career in podiatry.
In my free time I still enjoy highland dancing although no longer competitively. I also enjoy helping out on the family farm and spending time with my friends and family.
I am looking forward to taking the next step in my career, and advancing my scope of practice.
