Custom Foot Orthotic Scans
We provide a digital gait analysis that is an innovative comprehensive biomechanical analysis of a person’s gait cycle. With over 5000 sensors and a 300 frame per second scan rate, a complete assessment of the dynamic motion and function of the kinetic chain from the foot, ankle, knee and up to the hips can be made. This advanced system helps to identify even minor flaws in mechanics that contribute to and can cause painful conditions in the foot, knee, hips, or low back. The measurements are easy and completed in only a matter of minutes with the patients remaining in the stocking feet. From this evaluation, a recommendation for custom built orthotics can be made.
Customized prescriptive orthotics are individualized inserts that are designed to control and support abnormal motion and stress in the feet and the kinetic chain. Typically made of molded plastic or carbon fiber, each insert is built and designed for the needs of each individual. The feet are the base of the entire “kinetic chain” above it, connecting the foot, ankle, knee, hips, sacrum/pelvis, and low back. Abnormal motion such as pronation (flat feet or fallen arches) or supination (high arches or a rigid foot) causes stress through the entire chain that results in injuries like bunions, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, knee pain, heel spurs, knee and hip arthritis, and back pain. Prescriptive custom orthotics support and restore normal motion and may be the essential element in any corrective therapeutic plan.
