Gait Scan & Orthotics
"Physio Tullamore are advanced biomechanical practitioners who specialise in the assessment and prescription of custom made foot orthotics"
The GaitScan™ system featuring TOG Client Software is an innovative diagnostic tool and digital casting device that allows practitioners to
analyze patient biomechanics and order custom orthotics. With 4096 sensors and a scan rate of 300Hz (frames per second), GaitScan™ is the
industry leader in dynamic scanning capability.
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 which break down deviations from optimal biomechanics and assist you in
effectively diagnosing and prescribing orthotic solutions for your patients.
A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles,
but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet
much like glasses work on your eyes - they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The
plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait
cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole - and they have the advantage of having been made from precise
imprints of your feet.
