Biomechanics & Video Gait Analysis
Video Gait Analysis – What is Video Gait Analysis?
There are three basic stages to the human gait cycle, and it is impossible to view the detail of this intricate motion with the naked eye. By using a treadmill, digital video and a motion analysis computer program (used for high level athletes), we are able to slow down, pause and analyse your every movement during the gait cycle.
Video analysis of walking and running is a key tool in helping to determine the biomechanical causes of painful foot and lower limb conditions. Consequently, we are able to obtain a better understanding of your gait pattern and therefore recommend the right type of shoe, give specific treatment advice or prescribe a specific foot orthotic if required.
