The Gait Scan is a revolutionary assessment device that can be used to measure the force distribution through the foot as we walk or run over a platform with thousands of small sensors that detect our weight. Poor alignment of the foot can cause wear and tear to other parts of the body. Excessive pronation can significantly overload the lower limb resulting in a wide variety of problems including shin splints, Achilles tendonitis, knee, hip and back problems.
The scan gives an instant reading that shows the force distribution and areas where excessive force is being applied. With a full history and examination of the foot a custom or off the shelf orthotic can be applied. Exercises to strengthen or stretch structures that will improve walking pattern will also be available.
Patients can receive a printout and graph of their scan and compare their foot biometrics to an ideal normal foot.
Here are two videos showing what GaitScan does:
