When our practitioners are conducting your gait analysis, firstly they will need to gather information from your static stance to understand your plantar pressure points when standing still. Helping us to understand where the main weight distribution is placed on your feet while stationary.
The next protocol of gait analysis is to see the roll-off points of your feet when walking. This part of gait analysis is best measured with the patient being barefoot. You will be asked to walk as normal as possible over our pressure mat. You may have to do this a few times to get an accurate reading.
The practitioner may also ask for you to run on the pressure mat as we can learn further information on your feet from an active point of view. Which can help if you’re active from running to other sports such as cycling and skiing.
