Comprehensive Sports Shoe Assessment
The Shoetech clinic offers a unique and brand independent selection of the most suitable sports shoe for your particular foot. Using sophisticated computerised technology, your foot running and walking style, flexibility and other personal data will be assessed and a list of recommended shoe brands and models generated, that is specific to your foot and your individual requirements.
Gait Analysis is an important first step to assessing where your feet may need support. At the Shoetech clinic, a sophisticated computerised plantar pressure measurement system is employed to analyse your gait and help develop the optimum treatment plan.
Empiric Gait Analysis
Empiric gait analysis involves the Shoetech practitioner assessing your walking or running style. This is included in the basic consultation fee.
Computerised Gait Analysis
This form of analysis utilizes two cameras and a sophisticated software program which analyses your personal running/walking style, ultimately generating a detailed report.
Plantar Pressure Reading
Plantar pressure reading using sophisticated sensor technology. Shoetech evaluates the load your feet carry as well as the pressure applied to every part of your foot. This will initially be done in the Shoetech neutral sensor test shoe, but may be done inside your footwear with or without any orthoses.
