Specialising in clinical gait analysis and biomechanical orthotics that re-engineer and re-balance the feet and body. Our Philosophy; patients first - pain last. By using the less is more approach, we gently guide the foot and body back to health. We use Digital gait analysis to break down the way you walk or run part by part, evaluate any underlying cause of your foot pain and then apply that to any orthotics you have or may require. One of the many advances in Gait Analysis has been the use of 3D Podoscans to measure different pressure points in different places of the feet.
Gait Analysis Systems
Innovative pressure measurement technology provides unique insight on foot function and gait, helping you determine the root cause of problems in the lower extremities.
As gait issues can be indicative of underlying health problems, identifying and addressing abnormalities and asymmetries is of the utmost importance. Tekscan's accurate and affordable computerized gait analysis systems are used by clinicians and researchers around the world to:
Identify and correct pathomechanical dysfunctions
Assess and improve athletic performance
Measure change after treatment
Ensure effective offloading to reduce plantar ulceration risk
Design new footwear products
By looking at the mechanics of the body and the structures involved we can effectively assess the cause of many injuries and eliminate what caused the pain in the first place.
Custom Foot Orthotics
Custom Foot Orthotics: We offer a package for your foot orthotics. The package covers the initial Assessment and Biomechanical Digital Gait Analysis, one set of custom foot orthotics and the follow up appointments. You are also given the moulds of your feet that the custom orthotics were made from. We will email you a copy of the Biomechanical Digital Gait Analysis.
If you are unsure and only want to have the Assessment and Biomechanical Digital Gait Analysis, make an appointment on line. We can discuss your needs and the options available before you commit to the package cost.
Stay active and enjoy a full life
It’s not surprising to see how many people are affected by foot pain given the average person walks between 5,000-10,000 steps per day. Your feet absorb all of this impact. Over a period of time, the shear stress can cause chronic pain and weakness.
And the problem does not always reveal itself as foot pain.
Poor foot alignment can be responsible for pain not just in the feet, but also the knees, hips, and back.
Living with these types of chronic pain is not easy.
Chronic pain doesn't just hurt your body; it hurts your emotions, too. It can impact your mood, your memory, your relationships, and your overall quality of life - if you let it.
Foot Orthotics can prevent these symptoms.
When you align your feet you help align your whole body.
