The GaitScan device provides a digital 3D picture of the pressure points as you walk, which allows Footmech to accurately assess your gait. By studying how you walk we can better understand the biomechanics of your feet.
GaitScan shows up gait abnormalities, with the software comparing the distribution of hotspots with the expected norm to highlight problem areas. There are enough sensors in the gait scanner to accurately graph pressures exerted during the stance phase of the gait cycle during both walking and running.
This new information, along with your Biomechanical assessment allows Footmech to provide you with the most complete assessment possible for custom made orthotics. TOG GaitScan is one of the most technologically advanced gait analysis system available.
You will gain a clear understanding of the cause of your musculo-skeletal complaint.
Treatment prescribed can range from exercises, to soft tissue work, mobilisation, NMES (Neuro-Muscular Electrical Stimulation) strapping, temporary insoles, off the shelf insoles to prescription orthotics. Patients may be referred if necessary.
Contact Footmech to make an appointment so you can try out the scanner for yourself.
