Video gait analysis is particularly useful in helping to diagnose conditions associated with running or sport, as well as painful foot and leg conditions that are termed 'overuse' in nature. This assessment is routinely performed by our specially trained podiatrists during this form of consultation.
Why Video Analysis?
We use this advanced form of motion analysis to assists us in diagnosing complex motion related pathology of the foot, ankle, knee hip and lower back. There are a few stages to the human gait cycle, and it is impossible to view the detail of this intricate motion with the naked eye. With computerised video gait analysis we are able to break each second of time into tiny segments (frames), allowing detailed assessment.
