Gait analysis is a method of assessing the way a person walks or runs, and understanding any biomechanical abnormalities. It’s used to assess and plan treatment for a limp, sports injuries, injuries related to motor vehicle accidents, and muscular-skeletal disorders. Common symptoms requiring gait analysis include:
- Foot pain
- Heel pain
- Knee pain
- Shin splints
Gait analysis is also frequently used for athletes who want correct foot and lower limb problems.
The best gait analysis technology available
We use the “F-Scan” Computerized Gait Analysis System – the most accurate and comprehensive pressure-sensing technology available. Using the F-Scan system, we’re able to:
- Measure precise areas of pressure and force on your foot in regular movement
- Effectively assess the need for – and effectiveness of – foot orthotics, foot and ankle treatments, and changes in footwear.
We’re able to identify areas of excessive pressure over the plantar (bottom) of the foot, while actively watching and recording plantar forces as they take place. The F-Scan gait analysis (pressure mapping) system measures the pressures under both feet simultaneously.
The F-Scan consists of sensors which insert into each shoe, and a cuff worn on the ankle. A lead connects each sensor to the computer. The highly-sensitive, paper-thin sensors contain rows and columns of a force-sensing polymer. The analysis software gives dynamic pictures of the pressure distribution through each step.
