Gait Lab & Footscan
Brand new technology just arrived in Tynedale that measures the way you walk or run in Physio&Therapy UK’s new GAIT lab.
This new technology uses a special sensor that attaches to your lowest spinal vertebra (L5) and measures your pelvic movements through each of the key stages of the gait cycle. The information provides a measure of symmetry in terms of forward and backward pelvic rotation, lateral, medial and elevation movements. With this information the team of clinicians at Physio&Therapy UK can diagnose an injury cause, predict injury potential and most importantly direct appropriate treatment for a faster recovery from pain.
In addition the new FOOTSCAN provides a 3D analysis of foot pressure during movement. Giving vital information to the clinical team on how you move through the gait cycle.
Footscan can electronically advice on footwear and provide all the objective data required to produce the perfect insole for your shoes.
