At PhysioFit, we are able to assess your gait (walking and running style) and foot pressures with our Portable FootScan to compliment the comprehensive foot and ankle Assessment we offer. This can help us to rehabilitate foot and ankle injuries more thoroughly as well as a range of other problems to knees, hips, lower back etc. For those not injured the gait analysis can help to understand your gait and biomechanics better to help prevent injuries or to improve running and sporting performance. As part of the assessment we can also give guidance on appropriate footwear and provide a range of orthotics / insoles if needed.
The technology we use is simple, comes from the internationally renowned Running Lab in Europe of which legendary athlete Mo Farrah attended at the end of 2019. UK marathon specialist Paula Radcliffe is currently the Ambassador for this technology and the orthtoics that can be provided from the data analysis it collects.
This technology was the first in the World that captures static (standing still) and dynamic (movement) data from walking, running and standing, which it can also automatically transfer into fully custom 3D printed orthotics / insoles if needed. These orthotics / insoles were in 2018 voted best start-up 3D printed product globally and are now used by a host of famous international athletes. We can also provide insole for cycling and different types of skiing boot!
