Slow motion gait analysis + 2d pressure analysis
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)
