Gait analysis

Biomechanic & Foot

 

Your body awareness is constantly seeking for ways to stay in shape and in good health. To arrive there we must maintain healthy feet and good posture. A good portion of our day is spent standing on our feet and usually, as the day progresses, we become less productive. It has been medically proven that overindulgence and accumulated excess pressure on your feet and ankles can affect your output and general sense of well-being. A gait analysis and foot orthotics made according to computer readings are the step towards a sense of well-being. Download our catalogPromotions.

An evaluation allows for a complete and comparative analysis of the foot structure, pressure points to the ground, biomechanical alignment and the center of gravity distribution while in either static or walking mode. The imagery shows the foot structure and pressure levels which can affect performance and comfort. Thanks to the information supplied by video imaging, the alignment of the lower limbs is analyzed and the asymmetries measured, while in motion.

In response to the needs and functions of a foot in motion, such as absorption, ground adaptation and a firm lift and thrust, a foot orthotic fabricated, based on the results of this analysis, is optimized and allows for:

  • Structure alignment
  • Shock absorption
  • Total foot support
  • Increased prevention of anatomical damage caused to the knee, hips, back and upper articulations, by activities
  • Increased shoe performance
  • Weight distribution
  • Rebalancing of under the foot pressure points on a wider foot surface
  • A decrease, even disappearance of muscular fatigue
  • Propulsion using dynamic materials

Noticeable compensations to traumas and back instabilities are detected by plantar pressure analysis. The instability of the plantar pressure points can cause wounds or premature wear, even arthrosis, to the articulations (knee, hip, back).

All our foot orthotics are prescription made, made individually with plaster or molded directly onto the foot and balanced according to the biomechanics of the foot. Materials and techniques used are chosen based on criteria such as weight, age, morphology, pathologies, activities and a person’s overall general physical condition. Make an appointment today.
