What is GaitScan?
The GaitScanTM assessment system helps our team to analyse your foot mechanics by accurately measuring foot timing and mapping foot pressure.
What are some symptoms of poor foot mechanics?
- Localised foot pain
- Arch or heel pain e.g. Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles pain
- Knee pain including patello-femoral syndrome
- Hip or back pain
What is GaitScan for?
Foot type and function has a direct effect on joint alignment of the ankles, knees, hips, and spine. Abnormal function will impact on walking mechanics and can cause a chain reaction resulting in injury or pain.
How does GaitScan work?
Through the GaitscanTM assessment we are able to determine whether abnormal foot function is a contributing cause of your lower limb concern and whether customised orthotics will benefit you.
What are customised orthotics?
The information from the GaitScanTM assessment can be analysed to mould and manufacture customised orthotics specific to your feet. There are a variety of customised orthotics available to suit your shoe type including orthotics for work shoes, running, golf, and ski boots.
Is a referral required?
A referral is not required for a GaitScanTM consultation.
