Enriched Health Care practitioners can complete GaitCcan assessments with you Our GaitScan™ System is a revolutionary diagnostic tool for assessing your biomechanics. GaitScan™ has an industry high 4096 sensors and scans at an industry high 300Hz (scans per second). These measurements provide your Healthcare Professionals with a sophisticated information on your foot mechanics and assists them with orthotic and/or shoe solutions.
Your foot is in contact with the ground for about .8 of a second when walking and about .25 seconds when running. Imagine trying to determine normal or abnormal foot function with the naked eye in a quarter of a second? This is too difficult for even the most experienced practitioner. The GaitScan system records your timing sequences during gait as you walk or run across the pressure plate. This enables your practitioner to have a clear picture of your foot mechanics and determine whether you would benefit from wearing custom made orthotics.
How does gait scan work?
- Scans the foot
As you walk across the pressure plate, thousands of tiny sensors capture the distribution of pressure of your foot over time.
- From your step, the computer displays 2D and 3D visual representations of the pressure under your foot. You can see where you have too much or too little pressure.
- Prints a report
The information is then summarized in a report that can be printed for you and your health care practitioner to see. The report findings will help your practitioner evaluate your foot function and determine if the pain you are experiencing is related to faulty foot function.
- Determine the need for orthotic therapy
The information from this report will assist your practitioner determine if you need orthotic therapy
- When it is determined that you will benefit from orthotic therapy your information is then sent securely to The Orthotic Group laboratory. From there your custom made orthotics are manufactured specifically for you and your feet.
