Gait Scan in London
Are your feet causing aches and pains in your legs and back?
Research has shown that 60-70% of people have abnormally functioning feet.
Structural problems in your feet can alter your walking pattern and cause pain throughout your body. Your practitioner can evaluate the way you walk (gait analysis) and determine if you are a candidate for prescription foot orthotics.
Gait Scan will enhance your practitioner’s assessment of your feet and help you understand how prescription orthotics work to restore proper foot function and relieve discomfort.
What are Orthotics?
Prescription Orthotics are custom devices worn in your shoes that provide correction and assistance to your feet, helping them function in a more efficient manner. Poor foot function and alignment may be the cause of pain you are experiencing in your feet, knees, hip or back.
How does TOG Gaitscan work?
- SCANS FOOT
As you walk across the plate, thousands of tiny sensors capture the distribution of pressure throughout the sole of your foot over time.
- MAPS FOOT PRESSURE
From your step, the computer then displays on its screen 2-D & 3-D visual representations of the pressures under your feet.
- PRINTS REPORT
This information is also summarised in an analysis report that can be printed for you to see. The report findings will help your practitioner evaluate your foot function and determine if the symptoms you are experiencing are related to faulty foot mechanics.
- DETERMINES NEED FOR ORTHOTIC THERAPY
This information will assist your health care practitioner to determine your need for orthotic therapy, and will aid the lab in manufacturing prescription orthotics to support your feet.
