A digital computerised assessment of your foot dynamics and walking style which is then used to manufacture high quality custom made orthotics and footwear. A game changer.
Your foot is in contact with the ground for about 0.8 of a second when walking and about 0.25 seconds when running. Imagine trying to determine normal or abnormal foot function with the naked eye in a quarter of a second? This is too difficult for even the most experienced practitioner. The GaitScan system records your timing sequences during gait as you walk or run across the pressure plate. This enables your practitioner to have a clear picture of your foot mechanics and determine whether you would benefit from wearing custom made foot orthotics or generic foot orthotics.
Orthotics are devices worn in your shoes that provide correction to your feet, helping them to function more efficiently. Poor foot function and alignment may be the cause of various pains such as foot pain, hip pain, knee pain and back pain. Prescription orthotics may help relieve your pain by realigning and stabilising the bones in your feet, restoring your natural walking pattern.
Custom foot orthotics are rebated by most private health insurers.
