How does a gait scan work?

During a gait scan, you will be asked to stand and walk across a scanner. The Gait Scan system records your timing sequences during gait as you walk or run across a pressure plate containing 4000 sensors. This allows to have a clear picture of your foot mechanics and determine whether you would benefit from wearing custom-made foot orthotics.

1. Scanning the Foot

As you walk across the pressure plate, thousands of tiny sensors capture the distribution of pressure of your foot over time.

2. Mapping Foot Pressure

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.

3. Printing the Report

The information is then summarised in a report that can be printed for you to see. The report findings will help to evaluate your foot function and determine if the foot, back or knee pain you are experiencing is related to faulty foot function.

4. Determining the need for orthotic therapy

The information from this report will assist us to determine if you need orthotic therapy.

5. Sending the data to the laboratory

If it is determined that you will benefit from orthotic therapy and only if you are happy to proceed, your information is then sent securely to The Orthotic Group laboratory. From there your custom made orthotics are manufactured specifically for you and will be ready in 2/3 weeks.
