Scientific Gait Analysis
Objective and Scientific
Many of the injuries we see and treat in our clinic could have been prevented. Our aim is to provide services that will help you stay active and injury free. Whether it’s helping you find the best running shoe based on your running form or recommending strengthening exercises to keep you injury-free, FDFAC has the right preventative solutions for you.
Engineered in Germany, MOTIONQUEST analyzes your foot pressure, and uses this information to recommend an appropriate shoe. This system takes multiple factors into account, in order to make a recommendation from a list of athletic shoes from a database of over 1,800 shoe models. Each model of shoe in the database is evaluated and scientifically tested, including heel to toe drop and cushioning capabilities. Database updates occur twice a year, to make sure the latest running shoe models are included.
FDFAC has used Tekscan's F-Scan since 2004. The F-Scan System captures dynamic in-shoe pressure and force information and reveals interaction between foot and footwear. Unlike traditional visual observation of foot function and gait, F-Scan quantifies force, contact pressure distribution, and timing. The system includes sensors, scanning electronics, and software -- as well as a protocol for analysis, diagnosis, and confirmation of the effectiveness of interventions. The extremely thin, high resolution F-Scan sensor ensures that the most accurate data is captured. F-Scan provides biomechanical parameters and a better understanding of foot function, gait, and factors that affect both.
TEMPLO Motion Analysis Software is the best solution out there for objective gait analysis in order to make recommendations regarding alignment, footwear, treatment and rehabilitation.
Although the software is sophisticated, the analysis process is easy. An initial image is recorded of you standing in the analysis plane, and then various recordings are taken of you walking or running on our running machine.
The captured video typically includes lower legs, lower limb, and full body capture perspectives. Marker tracking can also be done to provide information about the entire gait cycle.
This revolutionary software provides meaningful data about your gait, including knee angle measurements, tracking data, kinematic data and gait cycle identification. This information is then used to guide your treatment plan.
H/P/Cosmos Motion Analysis Running Machine
FDFAC has used the German-engineered H/P/Cosmos Running Machine since 2004, and is one of only a handful of clinics in the U.S. to have this state-of-the-art running machine. An integral part to every walking and running analysis performed at FDFAC, the H/P/Cosmos running machine assists physicians in viewing forward, reverse, incline and side analysis of gait. With a wide belt and stable running surface it’s the perfect complement to our TEMPLO Motion Analysis software. The H/P/Cosmos Running Machine is unmatched to other forward only treadmill machines.
If you suspect the pain and injury you’re experiencing may be due to your alignment, FDFAC can help. Call today and schedule your scientific gait analysis.
At FDFAC, you don’t have to be an elite athlete to receive the same level of exceptional treatment and care. Our team is committed to partnering with you, and to getting you back to the activities you love ASAP.
Life happens. Don’t wait.
