Gait Analysis

Diagnosis of altered foot mechanics using state of the art computerised Gaitscan. Gaitscan is a sytem designed to analyse your foot mechanics both static and dynamic. Walking over a plate with a grid of pressure sensors reveals if your feet are supporting you correctly. Prescribed orthotics (inserts) are an excellent solution to supporting collapsing (pronating) feet.
