Biomechanical/Gait assessment

A gait analysis assessment involves analysing the way you walk and is carried out using a specialised 3D foot pressure mat  which provides us with a detailed breakdown on how you load your feet and load the joints in your body.

If necessary an assessment for orthotics will be made during this session  Our orthotics are tailor made to ensure that they fit your feet perfectly.
