Osteopathy near Hook, Basingstoke, Fleet and Farnborough.
Gait scan is a computerised technology that can help evaluate your posture, the way that you stand and walk. Understandng and promoting proper foot function can help relieve discomfort in the back, hips, knees or feet.
Gait scan is used to aid diagnosis and treatment by demonstrating and mapping the pressures acting upon the soles of your feet.
How does Gaitscan work?
You walk across a pressurised mat which has thousands of tiny sensors that capture the distribution of pressure throughout the sole of your foot. This information is then analysed by a special computer, and displayed as a 2-D and 3-D picture highlighting the pressures acting on your feet. This information is then set out in a report that helps the Oesteopath to determine if your symptoms could be due to a foot problem.
The information obtained will help the Osteopath to determine a treatment plan. For example - some special supports in your shoes, or a programme of exercises.
