What is a GaitScan assessment?

GaitScan™ is a state of the art computerised scanning system that provides a detailed analysis of your feet and their movement. This analysis, combined with your physiotherapists’ experience and knowledge, detects abnormal foot function which may be affecting your feet or other parts of your body.

What is the purpose of gait analysis?

Gait analysis is a way to assess the dynamic posture and coordination during movement. This analysis is a means to evaluate, record, and make any necessary corrections for a smooth gait.

What is a Gaite?

1 : a manner of walking or moving on foot. 2 : a sequence of foot movements (such as a walk, trot, pace, or canter) by which a horse or a dog moves forward.

What is the study of human walking?

Gait analysis is the systematic study of animal locomotion, more specifically the study of human motion, using the eye and the brain of observers, augmented by instrumentation for measuring body movements, body mechanics, and the activity of the muscles.

What are the types of gait?

What are some types of gait disorders?

  • Propulsive gait. This type of gait is seen in patients with parkinsonism.
  • Scissors gait. This type of gait gets its name because the knees and thighs hit or cross in a scissors-like pattern when walking.
  • Spastic gait.
  • Steppage gait.
  • Waddling gait.

What is a waddling gait?

A waddling gait happens because of weakness in your hip girdle and upper thigh muscles. To make up for the weakness, you sway from side to side and your hip drops with each step. It’s also called myopathic gait and can be caused by several conditions.
