WHAT WE DO
ASSESSMENT: THE INITIAL CONSULTATION & BIOMECHANICAL ASSESSMENT
During the initial consultation, we will begin by discussing your symptoms and concerns. This will help determine the status of your lower limb pain and how we can help you find a solution. Next, a biomechanical assessment of your lower limb will help establish the status of the muscles and joints. Taking measurements of joint alignments and evaluating a standing posture provides useful information to reference with the moving gait analysis data.
Footscope encourages you to bring any previous insoles/orthotics, appropriate medical scans or other records that will ensure we obtain a full picture of your symptoms.
ANALYSIS: THE GAIT AND MOTION CAPTURE
Footscope uses complex analysis techniques to establish where poor lower limb function originates from. We are proud to house a multi-camera Vicon 3D motion and high-speed video capture system. Further insight into how the foot loads is provided by an XSENSOR in-shoe pressure analysis system. Find more about our gold standard technology below:

EVALUATION: RESULTS & TREATMENT
A comprehensive report is produced detailing the results of the gait analysis. Following a discussion, we can decide on the treatment plan best suited to you:
Based on the analysis findings, you will be advised on appropriate footwear for sporting activities, everyday wear and also accommodating orthotics if required.
The analysis data will help focus on muscle and joint balancing exercises to improve function and stability. This can also be integrated with other in-house or more local musculoskeletal specialists such as physiotherapists.
Orthotic or insole therapy.
Working and liaising closely with other local specialists when required results in a well-managed multi-disciplinary approach. You will be recommended the best consultants or other affiliates to suit you.
