At Fix Podiatry, we use video analysis to record your gait. Each step you take involves many small but rapid movements. It is impossible to identify all these movements for each step with the naked eye. Video gait analysis technology allows us to watch it back at a slower speed and break it down by step or body segment. This is an essential tool for runners or sporting injuries as the foot may function differently when running and it is impossible to adequately view the foot, leg, knee and ankle motions at such a high speed
Not only does video gait analysis help us to identify the potential problem, but it also lets us watch it back later when planning your treatment program or intervention, and allows us to compare your gait after we make changes throughout your treatment.
