What is a Computerised Gait Scan?

Computerised analysis of your foot problems

Gait analysis is a computerised scan which is performed with the help of a 0.5 metre rigid electronic pressure plate that gets placed on the floor and is used to gather information as you walk across it. Contact us now for more information on insoles for shoes and orthotic inserts.

We have invested in the very latest equipment and software that can analyse your gait (walking pattern). Our unique footscan plates give accurate gait analysis and pressure readings every time.

Using our foot pressure gait analysis system can help to diagnose many faults in foot function, which can lead to problems in the lower back, hip and through the leg.

Once any problem area has been identified, the data form our foot scanning systems can be applied in many versatile ways from helping a patient recover from an injury to helping maintain a sports person to perform at peak levels or to advise of where they can improve their gait efficiency.

Our orthotics (insoles for shoes) can make corrections that will save you from pains in your feet, legs and back. Our specialist scanning equipment and knowledge means we can swiftly return you to a pain-free lifestyle.

Foot pressure and force distribution

The plate consists of thousands of pressure sensors that ‘take pictures’ at a rate of more than 300 images per second and so determine the pressure and force distribution on the surface of the foot.

Once this information has been saved into the computer we can look at various aspects of your gait in 2D, 3D and in synchronisation to get a bigger overall picture of how your feet work together when walking.

This information is often very useful in correlation with a consultation to determine what kind of support is needed in the making of specialised orthotics (insoles for shoes) flat feet shoes with orthotic arch supports. Your orthotics (insoles for shoes) can be tested by walking over the plates with the orthotics inside your shoes to verify the correction in your movement.

Research has shown that 60-70% of people have abnormally functioning feet.
