Gait Analysis Introduction

We use a video gait analysis to obtain the most accurate diagnosis of the way our patients walk and run.

The podiatrist carries out an assessment of the patient as they walk or run on a treadmill.

Our video equipment enables the podiatrist to record the assessment. This is valuable because the podiatrist can show the patient their own gait analysis, slowing the motion down to demonstrate problems in their movement.

It is also very valuable for the elite runners we treat. Running at high speed, the recording of a gait analysis allows the podiatrist to detect small movements with precision which would not otherwise be possible.
