Gait Analysis

Gait analysis is used to discover abnormal movements, which can produce high levels of stress in joints and muscles resulting in injury. Orthotics (foot supports) are able to minimize these abnormal movements and associated stresses.

The key to better health might be correcting the structural problems in your feet!

What your feet have to do with it

Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem develops in your feet, the subtle change in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics. These adjustments can put stress on joints higher up your body, and lead to more serious problems.

Using our computerized metascan system we are be able to provide a solution to your pain. By testing your foot pressure when walking we can provide accurate solutions to help alleviate your problems producing customized orthotics (foot supports) specifically for your feet.

Gait analysis is a computerized scan which is performed with the help of a 0.5 metre rigid electronic pressure plate that gets placed on the floor and is used to gather information as you walk across it. Contact us now for more information at 905-684-5953.

We have invested in the very latest equipment and software that can analyse your gait (walking pattern). Our unique footscan plates give accurate gait analysis and pressure readings every time.

Using our foot pressure gait analysis system can help to diagnose many faults in foot function, which can lead to problems in the lower back, hip and through the leg.

Once any problem area has been identified, the data form our foot scanning systems can be applied in many versatile ways from helping a patient recover from an injury to helping maintain a sports person to perform at peak levels or to advise of where they can improve their gait efficiency.

Our orthotics can make corrections that will save you from pains in your feet, legs and back. Our specialist scanning equipment and knowledge means we can swiftly return you to a pain-free lifestyle.

Foot pressure and force distribution

The plate consists of thousands of pressure sensors that 'take pictures' at a rate of more than 300 images per second and so determine the pressure and force distribution on the surface of the foot.

A picture of how your feet work together

Once this information has been saved into the computer we can look at various aspects of your gait in 2D, 3D and in synchronization to get a bigger overall picture of how your feet work together when walking.

This information is often very useful in correlation with a consultation to determine what kind of support is needed in the making of specialized orthotics or shoes. Your orthotics can be tested by walking over the plates with the orthotics inside your shoes to verify the correction in your movement.
