what is Gait Scan?
With both diagnostic and educational capabilities, GaitScan™ provides a comprehensive biomechanical evaluation for each patient. In-depth, informative reports give you access to over a million data points that break down deviations from optimal biomechanics and assist you in effectively diagnosing and prescribing orthotic solutions for your patients. Custom-Made Orthotics Orthotics are different. They are prescription medical devices that you wear inside your shoes to correct biomechanical foot issues such as problems with how you walk, stand, or run. They can also help with foot pain caused by medical conditions such as diabetes, plantar fasciitis, bursitis, and arthritis. Rigid orthotics, or “functional orthotics,” are made from materials like plastic or carbon fiber. They’re best for walking shoes or dress shoes with closed toes and low heels. This kind of orthotic is designed to ease foot aches and strains as well as pain in the legs, thighs, and lower back that you might feel if your foot doesn’t work like it should.
