Orthotics & Gait Analysis

GaitScan™ is a state of the art computerised technology that provides a detailed analysis of your feet and their movement. This analysis, combined with our physiotherapists’ experience and knowledge, detects abnormal foot function which may be affecting your feet or other parts of your body.

At Complete Care Physiotherapy & Osteopathy, we can prescribe foot orthotics to help correct your specific foot and body imbalance. You can help us by discussing any nagging foot, leg, or back problems, and even by simply asking if your feet could be part of the problem. The information provided by TOG GaitScan™ can help assess the need for orthotics, or indicate that orthotic therapy is not required.

What are orthotics?

Orthotics are devices worn in your shoes that provide correction to your feet, helping them to function more efficiently. Poor foot function and alignment may be the cause of various pains such as foot pain, hip pain, knee pain and back pain. Prescription orthotics may help relieve your pain by realigning and stabilising the bones in your feet, restoring your natural walking pattern.

How does GaitScan™ work?

As you walk across the pressure plate,thousands of tiny sensors capture the distribution of pressure of your foot over time.

From your step, the computer displays 2D and 3D visual representations of the pressure under your foot. You can see where you have too much or too little pressure.

The information is then summarised in a report that can be printed for you. The report findings will help your physiotherapist evaluate your foot function and determine if the pain you are experiencing is related to faulty foot function.

The information from this report will assist your physiotherapist to determine if you need orthotic therapy.

When it is determined that you will benefit from orthotic therapy your information is then sent securely to The Orthotic Group laboratory. From there, your custom-made orthotics are manufactured specifically for you and your feet.
